Publishing in the Global South

During our annual Munin Conference on Scholarly Publishing, we had the chance to talk to Samir Hachani, ph.d. and lecturer at the School of Information at the University of Algiers 2.

He was in Norway to talk about The Global South and the challenges of assessment and the implementation by The International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) of a journal publishing practices and standards known as the Journals On Line-project.

Global South and the Global North

We also talked about what injustices exist in today’s publishing world. And how journals can improve using the framework of Journals on Line.

Hachani has been working with these topics for a while and his main subject of investigations is Open Access, Global-issues, Digital Divide and Peer Review.

The lecture itself can also be viewed at the Munin Conference’s website.
