McNab, Alison and McGuinn, Kate (2017) The Game of Open Access: making mandates more memorable. In: UKSG Forum 2017, 16 November 2017, London. (Unpublished)

The "Game of Open Access" was created by library staff at the University of Huddersfield 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.

Developed in summer 2017, the game has been played by researchers and librarians in the context of library roadshows and in Open Access information sessions.

This presentation gives a brief overview of the game itself, our learning objectives, and the modifications which resulted from evaluation by players.
