The Information Program of the Open Society Institute (OSI) has announced two pilot projects inspired by the principles of the Budapest Open Access Initiative
(http://www.soros.org/openaccess) to support publication of research by authors from developing and transitional countries. Grants are now available for open access journals as well as institutional memberships to BioMed Central.
To promote open access to international research and scholarship, OSI will provide $100,000 in funding to support the publication in open access peer-reviewed online journals of articles by authors residing and working in countries where the Soros foundations network is active. The list of countries is given below for reference. For more details, see: http://www.soros.org/openaccess/grants-journals.shtml.
In addition, OSI will provide funding to support 50 BioMed Central Institutional memberships for institutions in countries where the Soros foundations network is active. More information can be found on the Budapest Open Access Initiative Web site:
