IFLA Comments on UNESCO draft Recommendation on Open Science

IFLA has submitted its response to a call for comments on UNESCO’s draft Recommendation on Open Science. The Recommendation is due to be agreed later this year.

Our comments focus on strengthening the message of the text, giving greater clarity on the roles that librarians can play, and ensuring that copyright laws do not pose unreasonable barriers to Open Science.
