Innovations in Reducing International Knowledge Isolation

Sunday, February 19, 2012: 1:30 PM-4:30 PM
Room 214 (VCC West Building)
Two-thirds of the world's countries have poor or incomplete access to international research journals, and researchers in developing science communities often face barriers in publishing internationally. The resulting knowledge isolation, however, is being mitigated by innovative new approaches to support access and dissemination of research and higher education curricula. This panel will discuss the strategies and impacts of ongoing international programs to improve access and dissemination.
