  8. 8. Indian Open Access Publishing Channels
  9. 9. • http://MedIND.nic.in • Produced under ICMR funded project - "National Databases of Indian Medical Journals". • Purpose is to provide free access to full text of articles published in select Indian biomedical journals indexed in IndMED or PubMed databases. • Presently covers 86 medical journals, published by learned societies and medical research centres. • Collaboration between National Informatics Centre (NIC) and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR)
  10. 10. • http://IndMED.nic.in • Produced under ICMR funded project - "National Databases of Indian Medical Journals". • Purpose is to index selected peer reviewed medical journals published from India. • Integrated to PubMed MEDLARS database. • Presently covers about 100 medical journals, published by learned societies and medical research centres. • Collaboration between NIC and ICMR for the Indian Medlars Centre.
  11. 11. • http://OpenMED.nic.in • A Green OA Channel and Disciplinary Repository, maintained by the NIC. • A Self-Archiving facility to biomedical researchers and practitioners in India • Purpose is to global dissemination of peer reviewed medical literature published from India and South Asia.
  12. 12. Medknow Publications • Medknow Publications [Medknow.com], launched in 1999 in India, is an open access publisher, now publishing about 328 STM journals, in collaboration with about 293 learned societies/ associations. • Majority of journals belong to biomedical subject areas. • Majority of journals belong to Indian societies/ associations, including journals of ICMR, . • They also provide Gold OA publishing solutions to societies in Asian and African countries, mostly from the developing nations. • Only few journals receive Article Processing Charges (APC) to get published after usual peer-reviewing and acceptance, other journals receive no APC. • Some journals are indexed in Scopus, PubMed and Web of Science. • Wolters Kluwer Health has acquired MedKnow in 2011.
  13. 13. Indian Green Open Access Channels Source: Directory of Open Access Repositories (OpenDOAR) – 8 out of 69, covering Health and Medicine subject areas. • OpenMED@NIC by Bibliographic Informatics Division, National Informatics Centre (NIC), India • Digital Knowledge Repository of Central Drug Research Institute (DKR@CDRI) • Eprints @MDRF by Madras Diabetes Research Foundation, India • EPrints@NIRT by National Institute for Tuberculosis Research, India • Eprints@CMFRI (CMFRI Digital Repository) by Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), ICAR, India • Indian Academy of Sciences: Publications of Fellows by Indian Academy of Sciences, India • IR@NPL by CSIR-National Physical Laboratory, India • Knowledge Repository Open Network (KNoor) by Department of Library & Information Science, University of Kashmir, India
  14. 14. Indian Open Data Repositories Source: DATABIB (A searchable directory of research data repositories) – 8 out of 25, covering Health and Medical Sciences subject areas. • Indian Genetic Disease Database @ Indian Institute of Chemical Biology • Oral Cancer Gene Database @ Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC), Tata Memorial Centre • ACEpepDB: Peptide Database @ Central Food Technological Research Institute, India • HIstome: The Histone Infobase @ Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC), Tata Memorial Centre • Human Proteinpedia @ Institute of Bioinformatics, Bangalore • Clinical Trials Registry - India (CTRI) @ ICMR National Institute of Medical Statistics (NIMS) • TBNet India: A National Portal for Tuberculosis Initiative @ Institute of Bioinformatics, Bangalore • India Sanitation Portal @ The Arghyam Foundation
  15. 15. Some Observations • Amount of peer-reviewed open access literature produced from India is significant. • Global accessibility, visibility and collaborative research will be increased if Indian biomedical research institutions – Establish OA Institutional Repositories, – Establish Open Data Repositories, – Contents Produced with Creative Common (CC) Licenses • Needs to strengthen – Linkages amongst Open Innovation, Open Access and Open Science Data – Knowledge Mapping of Collaborative Biomedical Research in India – Knowledge Networking amongst Biomedical Research Institutions – Open Access Advocacy, Capacity Building and Awareness Raising.
