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

The new policy means that anyone will be able to download, translate, adapt, distribute and re-share UNESCO publications and data without paying.

New ORCID-integrated data citation tool


The tool enables users to search the DataCite Metadata Store for their works, and subsequently to add (or claim) those research outputs – including datasets, software, and other types – to their ORCID profile. This should increase the visibility of these research outputs, and will make it easier to use these data citations in applications that connect to the ORCID Registry – ImpactStory is one of several services already doing this.
