Africa produces 8.2 scientific  research papers per million  people The world produces 103 scientific research papers  per million people The USA produces 690 and  Canada 723 scientific research papers per million people
The output of scientific  research that is published in  ways that are only accessible  to some people, or that is  locked up in the new form of  patents that are  designed to withhold disclosure and  lengthen monopoly privileges. Secret science Some secret science is probably  necessary ... …  but that  doesn't mean all science should be secret
Free science Research carried out for the public good (including knowledge growth), that is published in ways that are accessible to anyone with a networked computing device, and that can be freely built upon to create innovations that  contribute to both public  and private good.
Hegemony Accepted practices Limiting What we achieve Good for a while The old  way Slows progress
Open access publishing Institutional repositories Free and open  educational resources Copyright and  licenses Resource sharing technologies Make it easier secret science
