Submission + - World Bank Embraces Open Access and makes ALL of its Research Freely Available (arstechnica.com)

Fluffeh writes: "The World Bank is taking steps toward greater transparency. It announced yesterday that it would be instituting a new "Open Access policy for its research outputs and knowledge products" begining July 1. The policy's full title is "World Bank Open Access Policy for Formal Publications," and the Bank says it will apply to "manuscripts and all accompanying data sets... that result from research, analysis, economic and sector work, or development practice... that have undergone peer review or have been otherwise vetted and approved for release to the public; and... for which internal approval for release is given on or after July 1, 2012", as well as the final reports prepared by outside parties for the Bank. Over 2,100 books and papers from 2009-2012 are already available in the Repository"
