|The Game of Open Access||
The Game of Open Access is a board game developed by staff from Computing & Library Services (CLS) at the University of Huddersfield in 2017. The aim is to to engage researchers with the key concepts and tools required to meet Open Access mandates. Through the use of playful learning, it aims to develop an understanding of the role of Open Access through the initial idea for an article to its acceptance for publication.
The Game normally takes between 10-20 minutes to play, depending on the number of players and how much discussion takes place.
The game has been played by researchers and librarians in the context of library roadshows, in Open Access information sessions with PG researchers, at library and research conferences, and increasingly by libraries worldwide.
