Mosa, a new tool in the Belgian Open Access landscape


In Institution Research

ULiège Library launches Mosa, a new tool to discover in open access what is being done in the field of research in Belgium and Luxembourg. Interface available in French, English, Dutch and German, the directory already contains more than 295,000 references.

Mosa aims to highlight Open Access research produced by scholars from Belgian and Luxembourgish institutions. More than 10 repositories are daily harvested in Mosa. Interface is in Dutch, English (default), French and German.

Mosa currently contains more than 295,000 records in Open Access, but it also contains publications and communications with restricted access (intranet). Depending on the repositories, a Request a print option can help you to directly contact the author and ask for an electronic copy.

In total, there are a bit less than 600,000 records in Mosa, of which a majority of scholarly articles. For compliance reasons, not all Belgian repositories could be added to Mosa at this stage (repository managers have already been informed of the issues that prevent their data to be added). Hopefully, those repositories can be added soon!

Access to Covid-19 related research

Regarding current events, a specific research niche for Covid-19 has been created. The various publications on Mosa related closely or remotely with Covid-19 or the coronavirus in general are listed there.

The Mosa interface exists in French, Dutch, German and English. All Mosa open access publications are already accessible via the ULiège Library catalogue.
