Argentina takes steps towards open access law - SciDev.Net 2012-06-07


Argentina is a step closer to becoming the first country to pass legislation to make all publicly funded research available in open access repositories. The Chamber of Deputies passed a new bill last month (23 May) stating that all national scientific institutions must provide open access (OA) archives of their research, allowing the public full access to journal articles, dissertation theses and technical reports, as well as data obtained by publicly funded projects, but excluding confidential data.
