Open Access Africa 2012

Hosted by BioMed Central, in partnership with Computer Aid International

04 – 05 November 2012
University of Cape Town, South Africa

Open Access Africa brings together researchers, librarians, journal editors, funders and other decision-makers to share ideas on how open access publishing can support science and medicine in Africa. Building on outcomes from previous successful and lively events, the conference will feature open access expertise from the University of Cape Town, the rest of Africa and beyond. The themes reflect the need for a clear message about what open access is, the importance of sustainable funding for African journals, and the complementary roles of capacity building in research and journal publishing.
