Peer review is the oldest and most well respected form of review for research. [Merle Jacob, Programme on Innovation, Higher Education and Research for Development. https://www.oecd.org/sti/policy%20brief%20funding%20instruments.pdf]

An Open Access repository is a storage and retrieval system where published research findings and papers would be stored and made available for full, open and free access by the research community and the general public.

Open Access situation in Europe and North America presents a varied picture, from countries with the most OA depositories and journals globally and national funding mandates and OA legislations (USA), to those with limited internet connectivity (e.g. Albania) and few peer-reviewed OA journals (Luxembourg, Albania, Latvia, Monténégro etc.).[UNESCO, Global Open Access Portal http://www.unesco.org/new/en/communication-and-information/portals-and-platforms/goap/access-by-region/europe-and-north-america/]
