2.10 Let Us Sum Up

In this Unit, you have learned about different dimensions of OA publishing –particularly its genesis, community movements, benefits, approaches, business models and  long-term preservation models. Different stakeholders of the knowledge societies, particularly who are involved in production of knowledge, creation, dissemination and  consumption of scholarly contents, have supported global and local OA movements for making public funded research literature available through OA modes. Now we  need to develop a culture of openness for long-term sustainability of community knowledge being recorded and disseminated through OA channels.
