One of South Africa’s top open science advocates has expressed frustration at the pace of the country’s adoption of open science principles.

Susan Veldsman, a longtime open science advocate and the director of the scholarly publishing programme at the Academy of Science of South Africa said: “I am quite frustrated because things have moved very slow.”

Veldsman was speaking during a 10 December session on open science at the Science Forum South Africa.

Veldsman argued that there has not been enough financial support for open science in South Africa, in terms of incentives both for researchers and infrastructure.
