Macedonia: Distribution of Open Access Posters
Open access posters have been distributed in several faculties and research institutions in Skopje during the last two days.
Yesterday morning, posters were distributed in the following higher education and research institutions: Pedagogical Faculty “St. Kliment Ohridski”, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Architecture, Faculty of Dramatic Arts, the Institute for Sociological, Political and Juridical Research, and the University for Tourism and Management. Distribution was not allowed at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies so only a few posters were provided to the students.
Posters were also distributed during the presentations held so far at the Institute of Economics, FON University, Faculty of Economics in Skopje and the University “Goce Delchev” in Stip, and this activity will continue. Professors, assistants, management staff and students were covered by the campaign for direct information and promotion of the concept and advantages of the application of open access. About 2000 posters were distributed during the campaign, which was completely conducted by Metamorphosis’ volunteers Viktor Milevski and Ognena Kostova.
The open access poster is available for download under the Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works license. It contains explanations in Macedonian and Albanian language about the concept itself, presenting the advantages and direct beneficiaries of its application, as well as information on the use of free software for creating digital Dspace repositories.
