Open access to the results of scientific and medical research has potential to play an important role in international development. This conference will discuss the benefits of open access publishing in an African context, from the perspective of both readers seeking access to information, and researchers seeking to globally communicate the results of their work.
Hosted by BioMed Central, Open Access Africa 2012, now in its third year, will bring together researchers, librarians, university administrators, funders and other key decision-makers to discuss the benefits of open access publishing in an African context.
Open Access Africa is free to attend - for further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or register your interest in attending by completing our online registration form. BioMed Central will be in contact soon to confirm your place.
