Ever felt frustrated while reading a science research journal online, only to see the message “to continue reading, subscribe now”? That may soon change.

The Department of Science and Technology and the Department of Biotechnology (DBt) under the Ministry of Science and Technology have drafted a policy that says publicly-funded scientific work published in science journals must adhere to open access (OA) norms, enabling anyone to read online content on science research for free.

Wikipedia flattens the hierarchy normally found around the notion of expertise, democratizing both access to knowledge and its diffusion. Two Wikipedians explained to MyScienceWork what they get out of contributing to the...

Colombian Student Faces Prison Charges for Sharing an Academic Article Online

Colombian Student Faces Prison Charges for Sharing an Academic Article Online | Open access in science | Scoop.it
In many parts of the developing world, students face barriers to access academic materials. Libraries are often inadequate, and schools and universities are often unable to pay dues for expensive, specialized databases. For these students, the Internet is a vital tool and resource to access materials that are otherwise unavailable to them. Yet despite the opportunities enabled by the Internet, there are still major risks to accessing and sharing academic resources online.
MyScienceWork's insight:

There is still a long way to go for science to be fully open... This intellectual property issue is only increasing the gap between scientists of the North and those of the South, and it is slowing down the general pace of scientific progress!
