The ECS Calgary Student Chapter organized a community engagement event to celebrate Free the Science Week on the morning of April 3, 2019 at the University of Calgary. The Chapter’s main goal was to raise awareness about the Electrochemical Society’s Free the Science initiative to the broader community. Their event featured free snacks and coffee, as well as a screening of the documentary entitled “Paywall: The Business of Scholarship” (by Jason Schmitt), which discussed the current state of the academic publishing industry, as well as the benefits of open access. This event attracted students, professors and researchers from the Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of Engineering. Additionally, the Chapter’s committee members briefly discussed the benefits of joining ECS, resulting in 7 new members. The awareness of this event was especially important to researchers on campus who use electrochemistry in their work, as the University of Calgary library currently does not have subscriptions to all ECS journals. As Free the Science Week was held between April 1 – 7, 2019, articles from the ECS Digital Library were freely available during this time, making scientific research more accessible to everyone.
