Open Access Africa conference

Conference program from 04 – 05 November 2012 with online resources.

Open Access Africa brings together researchers, librarians, journal editors, funders and other decision-makers to share ideas on how open access publishing can support science and medicine in Africa. Building on outcomes from previous successful and lively events, the conference will feature open access expertise from the University of Cape Town, the rest of Africa and beyond. The themes reflect the need for a clear message about what open access is, the importance of sustainable funding for African journals, and the complementary roles of capacity building in research and journal publishing.

Hosted by BioMed Central.

Presentation slides and video from the event are available online.
