Removing barriers to knowledge sharing
Most research is published in commercial e-journals, but high subscription costs mean that users in developing and transition countries are disadvantaged.
Open access is the immediate, online, free and unrestricted availability of peer-reviewed, research literature. It provides the means to maximize the visibility and use of research output.
We advocate for open access to promote knowledge sharing.
