Open access in Indonesia
Keywords:open access, indonesia, publishing system, research output
Despite the absence of funding pressures that explicitly mandate a shift to Open Access, Indonesia is a leader in Open Access publication. Yet Indonesia subscribes to a non-profit model of Open Access, which differs from that promoted by Plan-S. The penetration of bibliometric systems of academic performance assessment is pushing Indonesian scholars away from local non-profit model of Open Access to a model based on high publication charges. This briefing considers whether Plan-S promotes or undermines the ability of Indonesian scholars to develop systems of Open Access adapted to local resource constraints and research needs.
