The attention will be turned towards such subjects as the transfer of the author`s works into the usage without reimbursement within the regulations of Latvia`s legal system; Creative Commons licenses; the experience of publishing in Latvian Open Access journal "Environmental and Experimental Biology"; an overview about Open Access legislation in European Countries - why is ENCES so important.

During the discussion the University of Latvia Library`s staff will introduce with Open Access movement's goals and importance and will present the results of "Open Access" questionnaire, which was created to find out the awareness amongst University`s academic and research personnel of Open Access movement as well as their experience in publishing whilst using Open Access.
