Open Access - Snippet No. 1

Open Access benefits:

- Researchers gain from the increased usage and impact of their work.

- Their institutions benefit from the aggregated usage and impact of their researcher and the increased presence that Open Access brings.

- Society benefits from better technology transfer, better diffusion of know-how and better-informed populace

- Open access encourages collaborative endeavours by making research visible to new communities.
