Mi scuso con chi riceve il messaggio piu' volte.

Vi inoltro il messaggio inviato al Forum BOAI e che e' stato inoltrato a 
diverse liste a proposito dei libri sull'OA che sono usciti di recente 
quasi in contemporanea.  Oltre a quello dell'UNESCO- CommissioneUNESCO 
della Germania, il secondo e' pubblicato dall'ICTP di Trieste insieme 
con il CERN ed il terzo da Kylie Pappalardo della Queensland 
Technoological University in Australia e molto attiva sull'OA. Sono 
tutti accessibili.

> Barbara Malina (ed.), Open Access Opportunities and Challenges: A 
> Handbook 
> (http://ec.europa.eu/research/science-society//document_library/pdf_06/open-access-handbook_en.pdf), 
> the German UNESCO Commission, July 2008. A 144 pp. collection of 
> articles on OA by 38 authors. (Thanks to Napoleon Miradon.)
> This is an English translation of Open Access: Chancen und

> Also see Canessa and Zennaro's Science Dissemination using Open Access.

> The book knits together pieces from many sources into a single 
> narrative. It's available as a downloadable PDF (4.74 MB, 196 pp.) or 
> an online edition in an ebook viewer with turning pages.
> The book is a compendium of selected literature on Open Access, both 
> on the technical and organizational levels, and was written in an 
> effort to guide the scientific community on the requirements of Open 
> Access, and the plethora of low-cost solutions available. The book 
> also aims to encourage decision makers in academia and research 
> centers to adopt institutional and regional Open Access Journals and 
> Archives to make their own scientific results public and fully 
> searchable on the Internet. Discussions on open publishing via 
> Academic Webcasting are also included.
> The book is an effort by ICTP-SDU (Italy) in collaboration with CERN 
> (Switzerland) enabled by the support of INASP (UK).
> That makes two books on OA in one day.
> If you count Kylie Pappalardo's Understanding Open Access in the 
> Academic Environment: A Guide for Authors 
> (http://eprints.qut.edu.au/archive/00013935/01/Microsoft_Word_-_Final_Draft_-_website.pdf), 
> Open Access to Knowledge (OAK) Law Project, June 2008, a very 
> comprehensive 150 pp. guide for authors, then that's three books on OA 
> in three days.
