News from the open access movementJump to navigation
Bernard Rentier has announced the launch of the web site for Enabling Open Scholarship (EOS). Read his announcement in French or Google's English. EOS is the successor to EurOpenScholar (also EOS), which was launched in October 2007. The first EOS was European, while the second is global. Rentier is the rector of the University of Liege and the Chair of the new EOS.
The official launch of the organization itself, as opposed to the web site, should follow shortly. The EOS advisory board is meeting in Brussels today to make the final arrangements.
From the new EOS web site:
PS: One of the top priorities for EOS will be to help universities adopt effective OA policies. With that in view, note the very strong optimal institutional Open Access policy and FAQ at the EOS web site. Also see our past posts on the new and old EOS.
