"Jisc and Wikimedia UK are collaborating on a project to bring the academic world and Wikipedia closer together. This will create opportunities for researchers, educators, and the general public to contribute to the world's freely available knowledge.

Jisc, the UK education charity championing the use of digital technology in education and research,  is supporting this initiative so that the widest possible audience will benefit from the world-leading projects that it supports. These include open educational resources, online repositories of research, and collections such as the 19th century newspapers archive and Manuscripts Online, which holds British written and early printed materials from 1000 to 1500AD."

Openness and visibility / A current awareness bulletin for ACP agriculture | Open Access News from the RSP team | Scoop.it

"The increasing focus on opening access to information is affecting agricultural research and development, explains Stephen Rudgard. There has been an increasing focus, globally, on various aspects of the ‘openness’ of information and knowledge since the early 2000s – open data, open access, open knowledge, open source, and so on. This openness involves, and is affecting, the world of agricultural information and knowledge as much as any other field of research and development. The impacts are being felt at individual, institutional and national and international levels, from policy development to the day-to-day behaviour of individuals."
