The Bank’s Open Access (OA) Policy, the launch of the Open Knowledge Repository (OKR) and the adoption of the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) copyright license form the framework for open access at the Bank.Thereby:•Improving access to Bank research outputs and knowledge products• Encouraging innovation by allowing anyone to use and build on Bank knowledge • Aligning the Bank's knowledge-dissemination activities with OA developments occurring around the world in many governments, universities, and other institutionsThe World Bank is the first major international organization to fully implement open access. Our goal is to make our research easily accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
The Bank’s Open Access Policy in one sentence:“The OA Policy requires Bank research outputs and knowledge products to be freely available online, without charge or restrictions, allowing any user in the world to read, download, copy, print, or link to the full text of the work.”
Fast Facts about the OA Policy:Represents a major shift in how Bank research and knowledge outputs are made available and is at the heart of the Bank’s Open Development Agenda.Makes Bank research—whether published by the Bank or funded by the Bank but published externally—open to anyone Aligns with the open access policies of other organizations such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Harvard University, MIT, Stanford, and other universities.
The OKR is the new open access repository for World Bank’s research outputs and knowledge products. It supports optimal discoverability and re-usability of the content by complying with the Open Access community’s interoperability standards. As of November, 2012 it contains over 9,000 records with continuous new content being added.
Note to Facilitator: If internet connection is available facilitators should switch to a live demo of the OKR. Once Live demo is concluded resume the presentation on slide # 26
The “Quick Search” box at the top of the home page is the fastest way to search for content in the OKRThe “Quick Search” searches across all metadata in the OKR (keywords, abstracts and title)Quick search is the most direct manner for users to access specific publications when they know the title (e.g. World Development Report)It is also useful for users looking for recent publications available on a specific topic, country or region.
In this example we have done a quick search for “climate change”Search renders over 3,500 resultsWe sort the search by descending order of “Publication Date”Among top 5 results highlight the report “Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C Warmer World Must Be Avoided” that got a lot of press upon launch.This is a key report on climate change that does not have “climate change” on the title. Thanks to the rich metadata associated to each work, and the powerful search engine, we were able to retrieve this book in our search resultsFor more sophisticated searches users should use the “Advance Search”(next slide)
This is the product page for the book “Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C Warmer World Must Be Avoided” We will look into all the information provided in each product page further in the presentation.
