As bibliotecas da Universidade Livre de Bruxelas e as Edições da Universidade de Bruxelas dão acesso a cópias digitais em acesso livre

"The Libraries of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the Editions de l’Université de Bruxelles (EUB), its publishing imprint, collaborate to provide free online access to recent books published by EUB which are out of print. The e-books are available on the Digithèque web site, the collection of digital copies of printed books created by the Libraries.


Providing online open access to EUB recent books is valuable

· For the public, who can freely read the books online,

· For the authors, whose books are offered a second life,

· For the publisher, whose collections become more visible.

Around 20 books are already available online, related to political science, sociology, European law, history, history of religions, statistics, environment…

The agreement between the EUB and the Libraries is part of the ULB policy as signatory of the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities.

Other open access initiatives of ULB include: The Study on the economic and technical evolution of the scientific publication markets in Europe commissioned by DG Research-European Commission; BICTEL/e, the Directory of electronic theses and dissertation; the Digithèque, its digitization program of ancient books from the Libraries’ collections and their online full-text availability; its Institutional Repository, under development, which aims to collect and provide online open access to publications and scientific works by ULB professors and researchers.

EurOpenScholarship

No dia 18 de Outubro, o Reitor da Universidade de Liege recebeu Reitores das Universidades de Trieste, Roma 2, Roma 3, Politécnico da Catalunha, Vicenza, Porto, Salford, Lancaster, Roterdão (U. Erasmus), Turim, Antuérpia, Ghent e Southampton, bem como os administradores ou directores do Instituto Paul Ehrlich, o Instituto Superiore di Sanita, Caspur Consortium, o Rutherford Appleton Laboratory e um representante da Comissão Europeia. O objectivo do encontro foi estabelecer as bases de um movimento europeau para o Acesso Livre as publicações científicas e académicas: EurOpenScholarship.
(Reenvio de Alma Swan para Stevan Harnad)

Versão inglesa de alguns excertos do discurso do Reitor:
"EurOpenScholar will be a showcase and a tool for the promotion of OA in Europe. It will be a consortium of European universities resolved to move forward on OA and to try to convince the largest possible number of researchers, their institutions and their European Funding Agencies to engage now in what will undoubtedly be the mode of communication of tomorrow. The transitional period will be the most difficult. Our goal is to facilitate and thereby accelerate as much as possible the transition to the OA era. (...)
The EurOpenScholar web site, hosted by the ULg, will provide an information-gathering service concerning OA institutional repositories and OA journals, with a discussion forum on OA and the methods emerging in the field of scientometrics (research performance and impact measurement, ranking and anlysis). (...) EurOpenScholar's primary objective will be to open researchers' eyes to the new ways of promoting the spread of knowledge and of assessing research progress and performance in the OA era. This will contribute to the advancement of research in Europe and to the promotion of European research and European researchers. (...)
In addition, EurOpenScholar will address itself to research managers, funding agencies, national and local research policy-makers, the R&D industry, the media, and the general public, facilitating synergies and technology transfer and providing an effective channel for the communication of real science to the public, either directly or through the media."
[Bernard Rentier, Rector, U. Liege]
