The AOASG has developed a series of downloadable graphics for the community to use in their advocacy of open access. All graphics are available under a CC-BY license. Please contact us for the source files if required through the contact form.
For OA week 2017 we have created five images that highlight components of open access and one that brings it all together.
Thanks to Mark Hooper for the design of these.
Other graphics available include:
