The DBT/DST is not the first to take this Open Access route. The Indian
Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR) and Council for Scientific and
Industrial Research (CSIR) also have open access policies. *This is truly
commendable when compared to technology transfer practices in countries
such as the USA, where the Bayh-Dole Act encourages universities to seek
patent protection over the fruits of public-funded research, leading to
fragmented ownership of such research.*
