OA and Global Information Access

We must question whether the current publishing model is sustainable, equitable, or even ethical to maintain. Access to scholarly information is often inhibited by its high costs. Such costs limit the visibility, usage, and exchange of information so vital to scholarly thought. Costs can also prevent  knowledgeable researchers from less affluent institutions a means by which they may consistently participate and contribute to the research of their professions.

  • Hinari Access to Research Initiative
    Partnership between the World Health Organization and major publishers to supply open access to biomedical and health journals to health institutions around the world.
