Open Access Week 2017

To celebrate Open Access Week, Stephen Hawking has made his 1966 doctoral dissertation, “Properties of Expanding Universes,” open access through Cambridge University’s repository:

“He said: “By making my PhD thesis open access, I hope to inspire people around the world to look up at the stars and not down at their feet; to wonder about our place in the universe and to try and make sense of the cosmos.

Anyone, anywhere in the world should have free, unhindered access to not just my research, but to the research of every great and inquiring mind across the spectrum of human understanding.” (from The Guardian)
