Open access in Russia

In January 2008, Russian, Belarusian, and Ukrainian academics issued the "Belgorod Declaration" in support of open access to scientific and cultural knowledge.[1][2] Russian supporters of the international "Open Access 2020" campaign, launched in 2016, include Belgorod State University, National Electronic Information Consortium (NEICON), and Webpublishers Association.[3][4]


There are a number of collections of scholarship in Russia housed in digital open access repositories.[5] They contain journal articles, book chapters, data, and other research outputs that are free to read.
