An awareness program on 'Open Access for Scholarly communication', organised by the Science Library of the South Eastern University of Sri Lanka was held recently at the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
The aim was to provide the lecturers, instructors and researchers of the Faculty of Applied Sciences a comprehensive knowledge in open access publications such as open access books and journals. In addition motivating academics and researchers to publish their research papers in open access journals and archiving their publications at open access repositories were paid special emphasis.
Advantages of open access policies were explained by the resource personnel at the program, which would increase the readability and accessibility of the publication of our researchers which would again give greater impact and citations of the publications. It was further discussed at length about the Ranking of Web of World Universities (RWWI) based on webometric studies while making Open Access policy as mandate the place of our University rank at the RWWI will be raised. It was realised that developing an institutional Repository (IR) is a joint venture of faculty and library.
Dean, senior lecturers, lecturers, instructors, demonstrators of the Faculty of Applied Sciences and senior assistant librarians participated. M.M. Rifaudeen, Librarian, South Eastern University of Sri Lanka and Mrs. M.M. Mashroofa Hameem, Senior Asst. Librarian, Science Library participated as resource personnel.An exhibition on 'Pamphlets, Dictionaries, and Encyclopaedia' organised by the Science Library was opened by Dr. M.I.S. Safeena, Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences South Eastern University of Sri Lanka.

Nous l’avons vu, l’Union européenne encourage vivement les états membres à adopter des politiques publiques en faveur du libre accès aux publications scientifiques. Libre aux gouvernements de favoriser pour cela la voie dorée de la publication en open access ou la voie verte des archives ouvertes.
While the debate continues over U.S. federal policies to ensure the results of scientific research are openly accessible online, a key group of critical, private research funders has moved quietly and steadily to make such policies a reality.
The Health Research Alliance, a group of 52 not-for-profit, nongovernmental funders of health research and training - including the American Cancer Society, Burroughs Wellcome Fund, and Autism Speaks - has made provisions to encourage its members to implement strong policies to make articles that report on the research that they fund openly accessible online to the public. The HRA member funders collectively invest more than $1.5 billion in research funding per year.
