Open Access in Kyrgyzstan

EIFL-OA news and events - ოთხ, 30/11/2022 - 17:18

Kyrgyzstan has over 50 higher educational institutions offering post-graduate and specialist degrees. Established since Kyrgyzstan gained independence in 1991, many of these institutions are relatively new. They define their own research programmes, and Web of Science data shows there has been a significant increase in research publications from Kyrgyzstan. However, the visibility of Kyrgyz research remains low.  Researchers tend to publish articles in closed-access journals, and lack the knowledge and skills needed to share, promote and raise visibility of their research output.

A Right to Research in Africa?

EIFL-OA news and events - ორშ, 28/11/2022 - 20:04

How can Africa predict and respond to the next pandemic? How can access to accurate news and research be ensured in all African languages? Can African heritage be digitized to preserve it for future generations? Can AI be used to build a better future for Africa? 

Answering these questions requires the very latest computational research methods. But do African researchers have access to the data they need? Does copyright law help or hinder the Right to Research (R2R)?
