Open Access Week 2022

Our RISE collection for Open Access Week 2022 addresses the theme Open for Climate Justice. Climate justice isn’t just about the crucial focus needed to tackle climate change, but about the unequal impact of climate change on vulnerable populations and generations. Open research enables the rapid sharing of critical information and encourages collaboration and dissemination across geographical, scientific, and economical boundaries – and is necessary for shaping the future of our planet.

To read blogs and interviews around this theme, visit our Wiley Network page.

Policy attention is focused more strongly on improved grid flexibility, market mechanisms that promote renewables, and efforts to reduce curtailment.
