It’s open access week on Brill. So, in this episode of Humanities Matter
on Spotify, Ramzi Nasir
and guests break down the concept of open access to research. Is it a basic human right? What’s its role in shaping global development? And how are technologies – both new and old – influencing a movement for it?
Ramzi speaks with Professor John Willinsky, author of “Development and Open Access,” a chapter in Brill’s Critical Perspectives on International Education, and Professor Michael A. Peters, author of “Degrees of Freedom: Open Source, Open Access and Free Science,” a chapter in Knowledge Economy, Development and the Future of Higher Education, published by Brill.
