An interview with Prof Manuel Ramírez Sánchez on 10 November 2015
How did you start to develop interest for Open Access (OA)?
Why are you still involved in Open Access?
What do you do to involve others in Open Access?
What difficulties have you faced on this path?
“Since the creation of the Institutional Repository, everything has change.”
Most difficulties came in the early days when a History professor had to learn how to develop a webpage, upload content and generate it. However, since the creation of the Institutional Repository, everything has changed. Today, making content accessible is easier; content is uploaded faster; metadata is incorporated more quickly: the change has been incredible. The time that it used to take me to share an article in Open Access has fallen to only a few minutes.
What still needs to be done for more Open Access?
