INASP Newsletter no. 43 Winter 2010 is full of short interesting articles; those that caught my eye were:
The importance of registering your institutional repository in the Directory of Open Access Repositories – DOAJ. So that we can all find this valuable material. And OpenDOAR. a directory of repositories which also offers a tool to help repository administrators formulate the relevant institutional policies.
The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) The “development of its free, source ‘Open Journal Systems’ (OJS) software.2 OJS allows anyone with a minimum level of technical expertise and access to a basic web server to setup and run their own professional, peer-reviewed, online scholarly journal.”
Open Access Week activities in Kenya and Ethiopia are also reported. But you need to choose your own favourites from this newsletter.
Might we see a new health library journal from Africa?
