Increasing free access to journal articles: Open Access Africa 2012

Categories: Education.

The free exchange of scientific and medical information can play an important role in international development. 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.

BioMed Central provides free, immediate and permanent online access to the full text of all articles published within its portfolio of over 200 peer-reviewed journals and, through its open access waiver fund, ensures that scientific authors in low-income countries do not face financial barriers to publishing in open access journals.
