Countries from all over the world celebrate the eighth birthday of Open Access (OA) Initiative. Open Access is a good way of science results expansion and its more effective use in developing countries. Serbian OA Initiative is established and the Consortium for coordinated acquisition (KoBSON) and Centre for Evaluation in Education and Science (CEON/CEES) have a prominent role there. Numerous Serbian academic and cultural institutions accept OA publishing policy.

For the first time, Commission for user services of Serbian Library Association organized OA Week events in two academic institutions during October 2009: at the Library of the School of Medicine (University of Belgrade) and at the Central Library (University of Novi Sad). Also, important activity to be mentioned is education of PhD students held by the information specialists from Department for scientific information (University library in Belgrade). Topic “Open Access and Copyright” is obligatory module of the lectures’ curriculum.

Knowledge dissemination about OA movement and its activities to academic staff and other potential patrons is permanent part of the Department’s work. On the Library website we publish recommended links for scientific information in OA regime, which are heavily used. Digital repository for dissertations in OA will be established in 2010.
