First Information Open Access Forum in Cuba
The preamble of the forum was the World Week for Open Information Technology in October last year, said Carmen Sanchez Rojas, Chairwoman of the Scientific and Technological Information Institute (IDICT) and president of the Organizing Committee.
The Movement for Open Access wants to eliminate the barriers that hinder access to academic digital materials, said Ricardo Casate, director of the IDICT.
Two strategies are proposed: one of information self-saving, for investigators to bring the results of their respective investigations and the other by developing digital magazines without economic barriers and with intellectual property.
INFO 2010 is a chance to exchange experiences, present international projects and sign collaboration agreements, with more than 20 countries from Latin America and Europe.
