Indian Government is currently paying 1500 crores (~150 million USD) per year for journal subscriptions and around 200 (~20 million USD) crores APC charges for #OpenAccess says @kvijayraghavan @PrinSciAdvGoI speaking at @DSTCPRIISc Unlocking the doors to knowledge repositories
@kvijayraghavan @PrinSciAdvGoI @DSTCPRIISc Knowledge has been the driver of social and economic change. Around 54% of our industry workforce is not skilled. This is not good for a knowledge-based economy. Rural reach is also key to bridge the Rural-Urban divide (India and Bharat).
Research is necessary for a knowledge-based society. 95% of our students go to a state university, where very little research is done! Research is not focussed on our issues and import heavy! There is a need to scale up local resources for conducting research.
