UNESCO launches Global Open Access Portal

On Nov. 1, 2011 UNESCO launched Global Open Access Portal (GOAP)

The Portal provides an overview of the framework surrounding Open Access in UNESCO Member States by focusing on:
  • the critical success factors for effectively implementing Open Access;
  • each country’s strengths and opportunities for further developments;
  • where mandates for institutional deposits and funding organization have been put into place;
  • potential partners at the national and regional level; and
  • funding, advocacy, and support organizations throughout the world.

In the Access by Region section one will find links to major Open Access projects in various countries.
