Global Open Access Portal

Global Open Access Portal
The Global Open Access Portal (GOAP) funded by the Governments of Colombia, Denmark, Norway, and the United States Department of State, presents a current snapshot of the status of Open Access (OA) to scientific information in 158 countries worldwide. For countries that have been more successful in implementing Open Access, the portal highlights critical success factors and aspects of the enabling environment. For countries and regions that are still in the early stages of Open Access development, the portal identifies key players, potential barriers and opportunities. The Global Open Access Portal is designed to provide necessary information for policy-makers to: Learn about the global Open Access environment;View their country’s status; andUnderstand where and why Open Access has been most successful. At a glance, the portal provides an overview of the framework surrounding Open Access in UNESCO Member States by focusing on: Related:  PhD

GLOBALGOALS | Universiteit Utrecht prof. dr. Frank Biermann - Geosciences Current Research Projects Since 2009, I am chairing the Earth System Governance Project, a long-term international research programme that was originally set up as a Core Project of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP). In 2015, the Project has become part of the new global umbrella programme ‘Future Earth’. In addition, I am setting up with Agni Kalfagianni and Elizabeth Dirth a new global research network on Planetary Justice. A central research programme in the coming years is the new ERC Advanced Grant that was awarded in April 2018, on "Global Governance through Goals: Assessing and Explaining the Steering Effects of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals" (GlobalGoals). A further new research topic is the governance of climate engineering, where I collaborate with Aarti Gupta of Wageningen University and Ina Möller of Lund University.

Le portail Global Open Access Portal (GOAP) présente un état des lieux du libre accès à l’information scientifique à travers le monde.

Pour les pays qui ont le mieux réussi dans la mise en œuvre du libre accès, le portail met en avant les facteurs de réussite et les caractéristiques de l’environnement habilitant. Pour les pays et région qui en sont encore au début du développement du libre accès, le portail identifie les acteurs clés, les barrières potentielles et les opportunités.

Le portail met en ligne les rapports nationaux de 148 pays avec des liens vers plus de 2000 initiatives/projets dans les Etats membres. Il bénéficie du soutien de la communauté de pratiques Open Access sur la plate-forme des Communautés du savoir du SMSI, qui réunit déjà plus de 1400 membres.
