Acceso abierto a recursos científicos

¡Hola!

Hay un interesante movimiento global que sigo habitualmente y con el que estoy de aciuerdo en líneas generales que defiende que los recursos científicos sean de acceso libre. Me parece tremendamente injusto que, en ocasiones, haya que pagar 20 o 25 dólares para poder acceder a un artículo determinado, o suscribirse a una revista, etc.

Un ejemplo de las actividades de este movimiento es la conferencia que se celebrará durante el mes de noviembre en Nigeria. Me temo que no voy a poder ir, Pero cuelgo la información por si os resulta interesante.

¡Saludos!

Josep
