Episode 3: Open Access Publishing across the World

According to Professor Frederick Ato-Armah, "Open access is a mechanism that ensures research literature is freely available publicly for any users to read, download, copy, distribute... or use for any lawful purpose, without any barriers to access."

For this episode, we speak to Professor Frederick Ato-Armah, Professor of Environmental and Sustainability Science, at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana, and Andri Johnston, who is the Digital and Open Access Projects Editor here at Cambridge. 

We cover what OA means, how it opens the doors to collaboration between researchers across the world, and some of the projects and initiatives Cambridge is working on to improve and increase the use of Open Acess.
