Kirstine's bookmarks 2019-05-30
Academic publishing has undergone a revolution in recent years with the development of open access, which enables anyone to freely access academic articles or books. Yet in this free environment, readers and librarians should have the ability to be guided toward works of quality certified by the academic community. Europe will now have a foundation that provides peer certification for open access academic books, a project driven by the CNRS, Aix-Marseille Université, and the Dutch foundation OAPEN. The new foundation, which was named Directory of open access books (DOAB), has just been launched.
