Creative Commons Video and Report on World Bank Panel on Open Access 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 published by the Bank be licensed Creative Commons Attribution license (CC BY) as a default.
