Bernard Rentier's insight:

An opportunity for Latin America: jump directly into science as it will be performed and disseminated in the 21st century. Free, fast and fluid communication of scientific results will be more and more at the core of scientific research itself in the near future. Persisting in the old fashion will keep scientists between walls and make them miss the next generation step.

Florence Piron's curator insight, December 29, 2012 10:45 AM

The project, entitled LA Referencia, is designed as an online federated network of institutional repositories of scientific publications. Its goal is to offer open access to scientific papers and doctoral and master's theses in partner countries — Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, México, Perú and Venezuela.

Policy of the Nature Publishing Group concerning Green Open Access

As opposed to some legends, the Nature Publishing Group encourages authors whose articles are accepted in its commercial journals to transfer a copy of their articles in their institutional repository (IR) upon one condition: to mention that the article has been published in the journal. No one would want to hide that !

It is up to the universities to make their IR well referenced and well known to their researchers and to the scientific community in general.

Revue Science: droits de l'auteur d'auto-archiver son article dans le dépôt institutionnel de son université

La voie verte du libre accès incite les auteurs à archiver eux-mêmes une copie en libre accès de leurs articles scientifiques dans le dépôt institutionnel en ligne de leur université. Une lecture patiente du site de la revue Science m'a permis d'identifier l'article de l'accord sur les droits d'auteurs qui permet aux auteurs publiés dans cette revue de poster leur article dans le dépôt institutionnel de leur université, en libre accès.
