Revista Digital Universitaria - 2 views

    La Revista Digital Universitaria es un espacio para promover la investigación, el análisis y la creación en México e Iberoamérica.
    Este esfuerzo de la máxima casa de estudios del país, es un buen ejemplo de la propuesta que en materia de acceso abierto se realiza en México. Debo decir que, muy a mi pesar, los contenidos de la misma presentan numerosas infracciones ortográficas, que demeritan la calidad de la propuesta ante los ojos tradicionales. Aún así, es algo que se puede subsanar. Las grandes universidades, y las medianas y las pequeñas, pueden jugar un papel de suma importancia en el movimiento de Acceso Abierto, especialmente para el caso de las ciencias sociales y humanidades. La universidad era una institución moribunda en el siglo XIX, y gracias a ella las ciencias sociales se instalaron en el mainstream académico, tal como enseña Wallerstein; en el siglo XXI una universidad revitalizada puede impulsar lo que ya se considera revolución científica.

    An interesting article arguing for the creation of open licenses for data. They make the point that the use of creative commons licenses is mistaken as these are designed for creative work not data or data bases. Unfortunately the argument - which is repeated several times - is not very thoroughly presented. The Talis Community License is mentioned as a possible alternative. The paper dates from 2008 and is thus - apart from the forceful argument for open licenses as the more viable alternative to the public domain - primarily of historical interest. Much progress has been made in the field with Open Data Commons Licenses now being an accepted standard as well as well as country specific licenses such as Open Government License UK, Open Government License Canada or Data License Germany (cf.

Access to knowledge in Africa: The role of copyright - 2 views

    Research by the African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) project thoroughly covers the issues related to copyright and access to learning resources in higher education in 8 African countries, namely Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda. For each country, the authors give the background setting, an analysis and critical evaluation of the legal doctrine and inter-relationships, a qualitative assessment and then draw conclusions and make recommendations for improvements to be undertaken to improve the status quo of these challenges. It's acknowledged that much more research is still needed. This book is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license.

Find OER | Open Professionals Education Network - 5 views

    Very good collection of useful sites + instructions how to find Creative Commons licensed items
  • ...1 more comment...
    useful... thank you
    Quite interesting guide on how to find relevant OER of different types and natures. «Reusing existing Open Educational Resources (OER) can save significant time and effort. The OPEN partners recommend TAACCCT grantees invest up-front time finding OER to reuse rather than starting development of new educational resources right away. A significant benefit of OER is that they provide source material to build your development efforts around.» Ricardo twitter: @ricbruno71
    Really helpful go-to collection of links with explanations for each, and more than just image references (videos, sounds, etc). Great resource, thanks for sharing.
