World Bank goes Open Access

Open Access logo

The World Bank has made all of its publications Open Access – except where there is a publisher involved when the publisher’s embargo period will be respected. They are also adopting a Creative Commons licence for everything in their Open Knowledge Repository. More information on their blog post (connected with a Liveblog on 21st May 2012) and original news announcement.

We recently discussed the benefits of Open Access publishing in our fully-booked “Getting Published” session for Swansea postgraduate researchers. Open Access news is frequently highlighed on our library “Research News” blog.
