OAHack: MIT Open Access Hackathon, April 6-7
Join the MIT Libraries and Open Access Task Force for an open access hackathon (OAHack)!
On Friday evening, April 6, there will be a reception and short talks about open access and open research projects. On Saturday, April 7, there will be an all-day hackathon and do-a-thon where participants can propose and work on open access and open research projects large and small. Both events will happen at the MIT Media Lab.
We want to bring you together with participants to work on projects that enhance the sharing of scholarly knowledge. The hackathon and do-a-thon is open to technical and non-technical projects that focus on sharing research, publications, data, code, educational materials, and more.

If you have questions, contact the planning team at
Can you participate in the hackathon:
As a project leader (I have a project I would like to propose for others to work on)

As a participant / contributor
As a remote project leader or mentor
Not sure, keep me in the loop
Sorry, can't make it that weekend!
Would you be interested in giving a short (lightning) talk about your project at a Friday evening reception on April 6 at MIT?
If you are interested in being a hackathon/do-a-thon project leader, tell us your project name, URL if available, and a short description (for example, "this is a bot that adds open access references to Wikipedia" or "this is a guide to teach students about article processing charges (APCs)"):
Tell us more about the needs you have for your project (for example, "I need someone who knows Python to fix bugs in my open access bot" or "I need someone to write text for the guide to APCs").
