  2. 2. Open Access?? ● If a publication is 'Open Access' it means that it can be freely accessed by anyone in the world using an Internet Connection. ● It is important to point out that Open Access does not affect peer-review; Articles are peer-reviewed and published in Journals in the normal way.
  3. 3. Models of Publishing 1) Open Access Journals 2) 'Traditional s' Journals
  4. 4. Open Access Journals Freely and Permanently available online to anyone with Internet Connection
  5. 5. 'Traditional s' Journals ➢ Print / Electronic ➢ Subscription Based ➢ Login or IP authentication needed for Access
  6. 6. OK Now Let me Touch the Point
  7. 7. Our Universities, in particular, should be directing their research focus to address the Development and Social needs of our communities. The impact of their research should be measured by how much difference it makes to the need of our communities,rather than by just how much international citations researchers receive in their publications. Blade Nzimande, Minister of Higher Education and Training, South Africa, at the UNESCO World Conference on Higher Education in 2010
  8. 8. In Nepal Context maybe We are Moving towards wrong way Although Open Access has the Potential to open up research publication for wider Development impact.
