International Open Access Week

The 2019 International Open Access Week (21-27 October 2019) theme is “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge”.

The Antarctic Legacy of South Africa is pleased to say that our digital archive is open for all  to use.

The ALSA archive focuses on preserving South Africa’s involvement in the Antarctic region, including Marion Island, Gough Island, Bouvet Island, Tristan da Cunha and the Southern Ocean!

Whether you are looking for scientific papers published in the South African Journal on Antarctic Research (SAJAR), newsletters written by current and previous South African overwintering teams, photos of people at the current and previous Antarctic stations (SANAE I,II,II and IV), photos of Marion Island, videos (multimedia), official governmental documents, etc. – you’ve come to the right place.

You are also encouraged to contact ALSA if you have any material that can form part of this 19 846-entry-strong digital archive.
