Some OAA follow-up joint works
Rania Baleela, Assistant Professor at the Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, UofK -and future UofK institutional repository manager- and Pablo de Castro, member of the UC3M e-archivo Institutional Repository Project at UC3M, have jointly produced several works as an OAA follow-up initiative, such as the report “Mapping activities at the Open Access Week 2010: An updated picture of the way Open Access is presently developing worldwide (with particular attention to Africa)”, where values in Africa are checked for some important Open Access-related indicators such as Tertiary education, Tertiary education spending, Science research and Internet users. A review of the Open Access Africa Conference was also published by Pablo de Castro at the BioMed Central blog (BMC being the OAA Conference organiser). Finally, data from international participation at the 2010 Open Access Week were collected and shared with worldmapper.org for drawing “An updated picture of Open Access” that was published at the ‘Views of the World’ blog.
