Asia OA


Asia OA is a special forum hosted by COAR in which members of the Asian open access community can share information, meet each other and build relationships. It has a mailing list and organizes meetings to facilitate greater exchange beyond national boundaries.

This community is dedicated to people working in the academic environment based in the Asian region. It celebrates Asian cultural diversity and unique way of doing things.

The community was launched in March 2016 with a meeting hosted by the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Japan. The full meeting report from March 2016 is available here.

Next meeting is scheduled for November 14 – 15, 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Positioning Asia in the Global Movement of Open Science
