Dear Colleagues

When advocating for OA, it is great to share examples why OA is needed. See the following:

Poor scientists cut off from mosquito disease insight<http://www.scidev.net/global/disease/news/poor-scientists-cut-off-mosquito-disease-advances.html?utm_content=bufferd5926&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer>

Scientists in countries affected by mosquito-borne diseases<http://www.scidev.net/global/health/disease/> are less aware of the latest research on these diseases than those from countries where those diseases are not endemic, a study has found.

Some examples also mentioned in the following presentation - Advancing access to information together<http://www.slideshare.net/inaviljoensmith/advancing-access-to-information-together>
