  2. 2. “We need to do development differently” Robert B. Zoellick, Former President, The World Bank Group New Direction: Democratizing Development We need to throw open the doors, recognizing that others can find and create their own solutions. We need to recognize that development knowledge is no longer the sole province of the researcher, the scholar, or the ivory tower. The aim is to open the treasure chest of the World Bank’s data and knowledge to every village health care worker, every researcher, everyone. Georgetown University, September 2010

  5. 5. Why an Open Access Policy? • To provide greater access to Bank research and knowledge outputs • To encourage innovation allowing use and re-use (i.e., derivative works, translations, text-mining,etc.) • To join a growing Open Access community (e.g., governments, universities, and other institutions) • To align Bank’s Publishing with Bank’s Open Development Agenda
  6. 6. Policy Scope WB OA Policy applies to manuscripts and accompanying data sets that: (a) that result from research, analysis, and economic and sector work; (b) that have undergone peer review or have been otherwise vetted and approved for release to the public; and (c) for which approval for release is given on or after July 1, 2012.

Intuitive Interface: • Several browse options, advanced search, most viewed content, citation information, permanent links, etc. • Built on DSpace - OA platform 3. Allows Use, Reuse and Building-on Bank’s Work: • CC BY copyright license 4. New Content: • Content published by external Publishers

  16. 16. Advanced Metrics
  17. 17. Conclusions 1. We are at very early stages in Open Access publishing. 2. Academic publishers are rebuilding their business models: some embrace, some resist and some hide. 3. Different government approaches to OA in the UK (Gold OA) and US (Green OA) has created some confusion. 4. Institutional mandated embargo periods are not as strong as government mandates (E.g., WB Vs. NIH). 5. Internal effective communication is key to maximize compliance rate. 6. Open Repositories built on open software (DSpace, ePrints) increase dissemination significantly… but marketing and outreach is very important.
