Open Access to scientific information: presentation of the INIDEP Repository “Mar Abierto”- beta version

logo Mar Abierto

The INIDEP librarians are very pleased to announce that the first presentation of the institutional Repository “Mar Abierto” (OpenSea) was made to all the scientific staff and a few invited librarian friends, last October 23rd, celebrating also the Open Access International Week and the INIDEP Anniversary.

Gabriela Silvoni is the Technical Responsible and it was developed in Dspace by Leticia Lizondo and with the Informatic support of Edwin Abot, within the frame of the Ministry of Science and Technology initiatives, as part of the National Digital Repository Systems. Important is to mention here that we also participate in the Board of the National Marine Data System and Leticia is the only librarian included.

The Repository content includes now 300 documents, all the scientific production published at INIDEP, including historical publications from the former Marine Biology Institute (Mar del Plata 1960-1977). Lots of documents were migrated from Aquatic Commons and OceanDocs and in the near future articles published in international Journals will be uploaded.

The presentation of “Mar Abierto” within a National System reinforces what we have walked in this direction until now, and our commitment trying always to make available all the national scientific production in marine, aquatic and fisheries sciences, since the year 2013 protected by the National Law Nº 26899.
We hope to have it available and accessible for everybody at the beginning of 2015.
