This course will examine the practices and experiences of open scholarly production and knowledge exchange in the so-called Global South, focusing especially on open initiatives in Latin America. We will analyze challenges, highlight initiatives, and explore options to contextualize the open movement from a southern perspective. The course will also analyze and debate Open Access laws and specific cases that illustrate the movement’s progress and challenges, and will present a practical approach to deal with the different open scholarly communication ecosystems in the world. Finally, the course will put Open Access to publications and research data in the context of the larger Open Science movement.
