SPARC Innovator: The World Bank
First, the World Bank first made its data freely available. Then, it launched its Open Knowledge Repository and began using Creative Commons licenses. On July 1, it will implement a new Open Access policy for all of its research outputs and knowledge products.
When an organization as large as the World Bank wholeheartedly embraces openness, many hope the impact will not just be a ripple but a wave.
For being a pioneer in sharing research on such a global scale, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition recognizes the World Bank as its June 2012 Innovator.
