Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

Open Archives Initiative

OAI develops and promotes network standards to facilitate the efficient dissemination of digital content. When the organisation was created in 1999, its main aim was to enhance access to eprint archives to improve scholarly communication. It has since expanded its remit to include the exchange of a wide range of digital content. The initiative is led by Herbert Van de Sompel from Los Alamos National Laboratory and Carl Lagoze at Cornell University. {{LINK_LABEL_GO_TO_WEBSITE}}
