Regional Models for Open Research and Education in Latin America - Guillermina Actis - OpenCon 2017

Download to read offline

This presentation by Guillermina Actis was part of OpenCon 2017's Regional Models for Open Research and Open Education panel.

Guillermina's presentation introduced the regional landscape of science and technology (S&T) communication, focusing on the alternatives that have been built in the last decades to increase local knowledge production’s visibility through regional indexing systems and gold open access (SciELO and RedALyC). The high-level authorities’ efforts for promoting green open access policies and building its infrastructures will also be addressed by presenting the regional initiative established in 2012, LAReferencia, which is a federated network of nine countries that aims at establishing agreements and providing guidelines for the creation of repositories to provide open access to publicly funded research, addressing S&T production as a public good.
