Removal of the obstacles to access information will both increase the quality of information produced and enable the rapid development of society with high value-added products and services. For this reason, developed societies have been making legal regulations to provide everyone with free access to scientific publications and research data supported by public funds and implementing very important incentives in this issue.

The Council of Higher Education (CoHE) is going to host 3rd National Open Access Workshop that will be held on 20-21 October 2014 with the intention to discuss open access of scientific publications and research data produced in our country through institutional digital archives and the necessary policy, strategy, legislation and open access infrastructure for this (Workshop Program). The problems and new developments concerning open access issue will be discussed from different perspectives in the meeting where national and international experts and invited speakers will participate.

Launched in January 2014 and being conducted currently, “Higher Education Academic Repository Project” is one of the most important agenda of the meeting. Developments, the current situation, and targets related to the project will be shared with participants. It is believed that the discussions with international experts participating in this meeting will strengthen the studies we are conducting, and empower our goals for the future.

On grounds that “Higher Education Academic Repository Project”, which we believe, is an important milestone on access to scientific information, the goal of the meeting is to introduce the project more closely to partners and get the thoughts and support of the whole stakeholders. All the publishing world, public institutions, private sector representatives, project funders and particularly our universities are the target audience of the meeting.

As the Council of Higher Education, we are pleased to host this meeting in which issues related to scientific knowledge production and sharing will be discussed.

Prof. Dr. Gökhan Çetinsaya
President of the Council of Higher Education
