Participants register for the Open Access workshop held on August 30, 2010 at the African Institute for Capacity Development centre located within Jomo Kenyata University of Agriculture and Technology, main Campus, Juja. Organised by JKUAT Library, Faculty of Agriculture and EIFL.net, open access seeks to remove price and permission barriers that prevent knowledge from shared. The theme is: Benefits of Open Access for Research Dissemination, Usage, Visibility and Impact. It provides free and unrestricted access to research materials. Open access benefits researchers, institutions, nations and society as a whole.
