dc.description.abstract After the 1st Open Access Africa conference was held last Nov 10-11th at Jomo Kenyatta University in Nairobi, Kenya, the authors were checking values in Africa for some important Open Access-related indicators at, such as Tertiary education, Tertiary education spending, Science research and Internet users.
dc.description.abstract All these indicators being quite bad-looking except for South Africa, it should also be noted that survey dates are not too recent for any of them. Things may be nevertheless starting to change a bit in Africa with regard to Open Access, and a map might be found which would picture real recent development of Open Access in the world. What we tried: mapping the number of activities by country that were organised along the SPARC-led 4th edition of the Open Access Week (Oct 18-24th, 2010).
