More on OA in developing countries

From Charlotte Webber on the BMC blog:

Following the launch of our Open access and the developing world portal, we invited authors and readers living and working in low-income countries to share their experiences. So far we have received contributions from a range of authors based in developing countries such as China, Nigeria, Thailand, Zambia and Ethiopia. Here you can read about the authors' thoughts on the internet, open access and how this has affected their research. There are also pictures of the authors working in their field and details of their publications with BioMed Central.

Do you have a similar experience to share? Send us your pictures and stories about how the internet or open access is making a difference to a research or healthcare project in a developing country by 30 September 2007. BioMed Central is offering a contribution of $1000 to be used towards computer equipment, for the lab or project of your choice based in a developing country, for the best entry. To find out more please visit the share your story page on our Open access and the developing world portal.
