(30 March 2016) “Today, with the unprecedented access to diverse research materials online, we are witnessing encouraging progress in the academic efforts of Myanmar researchers and students,” says Professor Dr Thida Win, Rector of the University of Mandalay.
The University of Mandalay has taken ownership and control of their research publications, is designing an open access policy and is preparing to launch an open access repository.
Coordinated by the university’s Central Library and faculties of sciences and humanities, the repository will offer free and continuous worldwide access to scholarly works that include peer-reviewed journal articles, books and monographs, conference proceedings, research reports and research data.
