Policy and Development
[by Timothy Vollmer] On Monday, the World Bank hosted an event called
What the World Bank's Open Access Policy Means for Development (you can
view the video recording of the event at the link or embedded below).
Participants included Peter Suber from Harvard University, Michael
Carroll from American University (Mike is on the Board of Directors at
Creative Commons), and Cyril Muller and Adam Wagstaff from the World
Bank. The discussion was timely given the Bank's recently-announced Open
Access Policy and Open Knowledge Repository. We blogged about the Bank's
announcement of these two great initiatives. The World Bank's Open
Access Policy requires that all research outputs and knowledge products
