A coordinated Open Access movement in Ethiopia is at its infancy stage with only few institutions contributing their research and heritage output to the global knowledge resources. However, we hope to increase the momentum with many librarians, information professionals, journal editors, and scientists advocating for opening up research and educational data and information.
The Addis Ababa University with support from the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) is organizing various events during the Open Access Week from 22 - 26 October, 2012. The theme of the event will be “Set the Default to Open Access: Open Access to Scholarly Information as a Means to Strengthening Education, Research and Development”. There are presentations, showcases, and discussion of policy issues for open access. Although this event will be conducted at the Addis Ababa University, other universities in the Country will have the chance to participate via video conference.
This group does not have any discussions yet.
