  • IODE-OceanDocs Policy Document 2018.

    Simpson, Pauline (UNESCO/IOC Project Office for IODEOostende, Belgium, 2018)
    OceanDocs is a secure, permanent open access repository for marine related institutes or marine related projects and is hosted by the Project Office for IODE of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of Unesco. OceanDocs was created in 2007 to develop a distributed network of institutional, regional and national repositories. It started life as OdinPubAfrica, an open access repository1 developed by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, Ocean Data and Information Network (ODIN) Project, Marine Information Management Group, to contain the scientific literature from African marine science institutes. Other, ODIN groups were also interested in developing a similar repository project for their region. As a result the OdinPubAfrica repository was extended to accept other ODIN groups and was renamed OceanDocs (http://www.oceandocs.org). The implementation of the OceanDocs Network: - Makes scientific research of marine science institutes more quickly, and easily and freely accessible to the research and policy management community, - Makes local and regional grey literature available on a worldwide scale - Enhances the internal scientific communication - Facilitates publishing of research findings (e-journal as well as e-archive), specifically for scientists in Developing Countries thereby promoting their research and increasing their access to the international research forum.
