From the KnowledgeSpeak Newsletter:
Very often, scientists in developing countries are not aware of the nature and extent of scientific experiments being pursued in their regions owing to working in isolation. Moreover the scientists find it difficult to publicize their work quickly.
In order to assist in such matters, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) has organized an Open Access Archive. Here, scientists from various countries can post their scientific work without incurring any charge. Pre-prints, reprints, seminar papers, pre-publication book chapters and Curriculum Vitae of the authors can also be uploaded. The copyright agreement of the previously published work must be reviewed with the publishers before archiving.
