Open Access India

For creating more awareness on open access to publicly funded research in India, a facebook group 'Open Access India' is formed. This group would be a platform for advocating open access and sharing success stories of open access movement in the world and India.

The aims & objectives are as follows:
Advocacy - sensitizing the researchers, policy makers and general public on the need to make data & information generated through public funds openly available.
Development of community e-infrastructure, capacity building and framework for 'Open Access' policies for sharing data & information.

It invites anyone who is involved and interested in the open access movement to discuss and raise issues related to open access in general and in specific to India. The group would work for influencing the policy makers, managers, researchers, scholarly societies to adopt open access policy for their research and to take forward the open access movement in India.
