Consolidating the African open access agenda

#scholarAfrica – Consolidating the African open agenda

By Michelle Willmers – in University World News.

Open Access has officially gone mainstream.

It is now embraced by governments, funders and researchers, and is widely acknowledged as an enabler of knowledge societies.

Recent months have seen an increasing tide of national and funder-driven initiatives aimed at consolidating delivery mechanisms for greater and more equitable access to research, and the current revolution in internet-driven scholarly communication has been underpinned by a radical change in the way in which academics conduct and share their work.
