During the international Open Access Week 2020 from 19 to 25 October, the SNSF and swissuniversities published eight short videos. In these, researchers and senior academic administrators talk about the challenges and opportunities they face in a series of short videos. Implementing open access poses different challenges depending on the discipline. This is reflected in the choice of different speakers for the videos, each from another discipline.
