Description

This episode is on Public Knowledge Project (PKP) international scholarly publishing conference, where we met different groups active in open access movement from all over the world. PKP is a non-profit project, started about 20 years ago with the main focus on open access publishing. They have several products related to publishing such as Open Journal Systems (OJS) which is an open source software for facilitating the publishing process of peer reviewed journals.
The conference was held at Montreal in August. John Willinsky, the founder of PKP, opened the conference with a very interesting speech about the open access movement and the history behind scholarly publishing from 1693 regarding copyright, licensing, monopolies and the impact of John Lock on the changing the situation. We covered some parts of his speech in this episode.
We have interviewed some of the conference attendees on their projects. In this episode we release our interview with Alex Mendoça who talked about Scielo Brazil and their activities such as gathering research open data and the challenges around it. Other interviews will be released in near future.
