The World Bank continues its open publication policy

The World Bank has launched the World Bank Open Knowledge Repository (OKR), which is an official open access repository for its research outputs and knowledge products. The new portal is free and open to the public at http://openknowledge.worldbank.org/. Last year World Bank announced free access to its online data and statistics at World Bank Open Data.

The Open Knowledge Repository currently contains more than 2100 e-books and research publications from 2009-2012 and it will include approximately one-third of the content available in the World Bank eLibrary.

The World Bank eLibrary, Open Knowledge Repository and Open Data can be found in the Nelli portal.
