The open access and open data for agriculture movement is progressing swiftly and CGIAR is committed to taking a leading role into the future. CGIAR wants to make all of its data and research outputs open and harvestable, with the Open Access mandate being in place since March 2012, when the CGIAR Consortium approved the CGIAR Principles on the Management of Intellectual Assets.
This page is designed to offer public access to key documents relevant to Open Access, including drafts of documents for consideration, in the name of openness and transparency. For questions, comments, concerns, or ideas, please contact us at open [at] cgiar.org.
