Now the time has come to start a campaign to submit to MHRD and Min. of S&T on National Open Access Policy. For that we need to build a momentum on what is Open Access and how it benefits all of us (science & society).
In this regard, I request you all to please share your thoughts and messages on Open Access with the Ministers responsible.
Please write to Hon’ble PM Mr. Narendra Modi (@narendramodi https://www.facebook.com/narendramodi and Hon’ble Minister HRD Ms. Smriti Z. Irani @smritiirani https://www.facebook.com/Smriti.Irani.Official).
During the Open Access Week (http://www.openaccessweek.org/) celebrations world-wide (http://www.sparc.arl.org/initiatives/openaccessweek) , we shall submit a draft policy which was already made by our Open Access advocates like Mr. Subbiah Arunachalam and others).
On behalf of Open Access India
