Back in July 2008, Enrique Canessa and Marco Zennaro put together a book entitled Science Dissemination using Open Access in which I contributed with a chapter called Web 2.0 and Open Access, based on a former article of mine, The personal research portal: web 2.0 driven individual commitment with open access for development.
Now this book has been translated into Spanish by the Universidad de los Andes within the framework of their Acceso Abierto al Conocimiento en Latinoamérica [Open Access to Knowledge in Latin America] initiative.
Of course, my chapter has also been translated and is now entitled Web 2.0 y el Acceso Abierto al conocimiento, which I have to admit is a clearer title.
I want to sincerely thank — thank you, thank you very much — the team at the Universidad de los Andes in Venezuela for considering the suitability of the book and translating it, and Enrique Canessa and Marco Zennaro for the original idea and editing work.
