UNESCO to make its publications available free of charge :Open Access


[clip]

 

UNESCO will make its digital publications available to millions of people around the world free-of-charge with an open license. Following a decision by the Organization’s Executive Board in April, UNESCO has become the first member of the United Nations to adopt such an Open Access policy for its publications. The new policy means that anyone will be able to download, translate, adapt, distribute and re-share UNESCO publications and data without paying.

SciELO


[Clip]

SciELO is a cooperative decentralized platform for electronic publishing of scientific journals, with national focal points in 15 countries.  From Latin America and the Caribbean, the following countries, with active national focal points, have journal collections in SciELO: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.  Scielo provides open access to more than 750 journals from the region, allowing searches in article and journal level, by subject or country, to view and download abstract, full-text, and citation information.

SciELO started in Brazil in 1997 as a partnership among FAPESP – the State of São Paulo Science Foundation- and BIREME -the Latin America and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information), a center of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO)-.  Since 2002 SciELO also receives support from CNPq -Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico.  SciELO demonstrates the importance of government funding to improve visibility, access and impact of science in developing countries.

OpenStax College is a nonprofit organization committed to improving student access to quality learning materials. Our free textbooks are developed and peer-reviewed by educators to ensure they are readable, accurate, and meet the scope and sequence requirements of your course. Through our partnerships with companies and foundations committed to reducing costs for students, OpenStax College is working to improve access to higher education for all. OpenStax College is an initiative of Rice University and is made possible through the generous support of several philanthropic foundations.

A grant from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation will allow OpenStax College to add to its current offerings in physics and sociology, and its two new biology books and an introductory anatomy text coming out this fall. The new titles will be in precalculus, chemistry, economics, U.S. history, psychology and statistics, Rice said, toward its goal of producing high-quality open-source books in the 25 most-enrolled college courses. OpenStax says its existing two texts have been downloaded more than 70,000 times so far.
