World Bank open access policy

 



World Bank announced that starting from July 1, the institution will adopt a deposit policy for its scientific production (articles, books, working papers, datasets), which will be archived in the new institutional repository Open Knowledge Repository and will be freely accessible.


World Bank will be the first international organization to provide its scientific production with a Creative Common License. Therefore this content may be freely read, downloaded, saved, copied, printed and reused as long as credit is given to the authors.
