Open Access Nepal – a student lead initiative – will be hosting a series of events in Nepal during International Open Access Week 2014. These activities and events will help to raise awareness regarding open access and promote open access policies and principles in the country.
Students, researchers, librarians and policy makers will discuss open access developments in Nepal and their roles in promoting and advancing open access. Through conference sessions, workshops, peer to peer discussions and training sessions they will be equipped with the knowledge and skills that will help them promote the policies and principles of open access at their respective institutions.
The project will also contribute to populating a central open access repository in Nepal with more content by motivating researchers and students to make their research output openly available. Read the case study The Central Open Access Repository in Nepal here.
EIFL and Right to Research Coalition provide financial support for the Open Access Week in Nepal. And EIFL Open Access Programme Manager Iryna Kuchma will speak at the events.
