From where we speak: CLACSO is a 50 years old research network whose activities are concentrated in the field of the social sciences and the humanities. We promote an interdisciplinary approach to major social, political, environmental, cultural, economic and educational problems that confront our societies. And we are very active in intra-regional and inter-regional cooperation in social sciences and the humanities.
All publications from CLACSO –journals, books, policy briefs, working documents, multimedia- are available in open Here are some numbers which show the results of CLACSO´s initiatives in open access in the past 15 years
CLACSO´s open access campaign promotes a model of open access to knowledge as a commons, managed in participatory and inclusive models by the scholarly community, with no outsourcing to commercial publishers, and defends this position in the international debate on a renewal of scholarly communications
What is open access and why it has so many benefits? The short definition of “open access” is free online access. There are two primary ways to publish in open access: publish in an open access journal and/or in a repository When we publish in open access, we increase the size of our audience and the impact of our work.
In this book, which is available in open access, Martin Eve mentions that “The production costs of a book are significantly higher than the production costs of an article. Hence, it’s significantly harder to find subsidies to pay for OA books than those to pay for OA journals” This book describes several business models for open access in the humanities, mainly in European and anglophone countries.
The region from where we come, Latin America, is the region of the world where the transition to open access publications (publications which are free to download from the web) has the highest adoption rate, this transition to open access is managed and funded by the scholarly community as part of the cost of research, with no need to pay to read and no need to pay to publish (no APCs- article processing charges), and with no outsourcing to commercial publishers. Slowly but steadily over the past 15 years in developed and developing regions open access platforms and repositories managed by the scholarly communities, with no outsourcing to commercial publishers, have become increasingly important components when thinking of regional and global research infrastructures. These open access publishing platforms and repositories allow humanities outputs to have more visibility and access in support of education, research, and all kind of activities.
Here are examples of where to access open access journals Nearly ten thousand open access journals from 123 countries are included in DOAJ For specific searches in the Global South, examples are - AJOL in Africa (220 open access journals from Africa, - SciELO (1.250 open access journals from Iberoamerican countries and South Africa) Redalyc (1.218 open access journals from Iberoamerican countries) INASP has journals online collections for several countries of Asia, Latin America and Africa
Nearly 4000 repositories worldwide are included in these two services where you can search for repositories in all countries.
An open access repository is a set of services that provide open access to research or educational content created at an institution or by a specific research community. They may be institutionally-based or subject based collections.
COAR-Confederation of Open Access Repositories, is working together with Regional networks of repositories to build a worldwide collaborative and distributed infrastructure of repositories. The leading case in regional repositories is OpenAIRE in Europe that has a very robust repository landscape with about 45% percent of the world’s repositories. And then, in other regions of the world, regional networks are adopting common approaches to policies, practices and technologies that allow open access to several millions of full-texts worldwide.
The initiatives mentioned in this presentation gives examples of how humanities from developed and developing countries can improve its visibility and access to better serve local and global sustainable development agendas
