Good initiative.... We need to work for OA more in this region. We may merge the SAARC OA initiative with this and take forward along with Asian OA of COAR.

Thanks for starting. Let's start by creating a strategy document. We will have something more to talk (and do) during the Asia Regional Meeting in December in Kathmandu.

Great, Sridhar! Can you make an separate organizations on Github for OA Asia and OA SAARC? It will be more logical to make repos for strategy documents in those organizations than in Nepal. I can also do it if you want.

@InquisitiveVi thanks for the reference. I have added those comments to the doc we are working on. We need to work on the structure of the document. Add your input and invite more people to OA Asia and OA SAARC github organizations.
