KovsieScholar to accelerate pace of scholarship and research
2015-09-02

   

The University of the Free State signed the Berlin Declaration in 2011. Signatories of this declaration support knowledge dissemination within the open access paradigm. It calls for research output to be made available widely on the Internet, with permissions necessary for users to use and re-use research results in a way that accelerates the pace of scholarship and research.

On 24 August 2015, during Research Week, the Sasol Library launched KovsieScholar, the UFS’s new research repository that collects, preserves, and distributes open access digital material. KovsieScholar is an important tool for preserving our university’s legacy, facilitating digital preservation, and scholarly communication. KovsieScholar will increase the university’s global visibility as well as the impact and profiles of its researchers, and contribute to the preservation and sharing of knowledge.

The UFS has committed itself to supporting the principles of open access by encouraging its researchers to publish in open access journals, and by depositing peer-reviewed research papers in open access repositories.
