Ambassador Program

The Ambassador Program of the Open Access Asia (OAA) is a community-driven initiative that aims to increase awareness and promote the use of open-access scholarly publishing.

Ambassadors also help to promote the use of OAA as a trusted source of information on high-quality, peer-reviewed open-access journals. The program provides a platform for collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and networking, helping to build a more inclusive and sustainable global scholarly publishing ecosystem.
