Open Knowledge Repository from the World Bank

 

The World Bank is the largest single source of development knowledge. The World Bank Open Knowledge Repository (OKR) is The World Bank’s official open access repository for its research outputs and knowledge products.

Through the OKR, The World Bank collects, disseminates, and permanently preserves its intellectual output in digital form. The OKR is interoperable with other repositories and supports optimal discoverability and re-usability of the content by complying with Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) standards and the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH).

The World Bank’s new Open Access Policy (effective July 1, 2012), and the OKR will both improve access to those who regularly use World Bank research outputs and knowledge products as well as increase the range of people who can now access Bank content—from governments and civil society organizations (CSOs), to students and the general public.
