  3. WSL and Free Software in Brazil

    WSL has 16 years old right now – and 16 editions.

    WSL attracted researchers from several countries and published
    papers in 3 idioms: Portuguese, English and Spanish. Known people
    of Brazilian computer science community had published in WSL.

    In this 16 years, WSL has been the main scientific publication
    vehicle for the main developments for free software research in
    Brazil.

  4. WSL and Free Software in Brazil

    But WSL papers were dispersed in different websites or only
    available in a few books, virtually inaccessible for the most of
    audience.

    How to increase the scientific importance of WSL and spread the
    knowledge published in the workshop?

  5. Free Software and Open Access

    Open Access has emerged as a social and political movement: the
    objective is releasing for public access in the internet, free of charge,
    the scientific literature and data.

    There are several documents and good practices documenting what
    is Open Access: BOAI, BOAI10, BDOA, BSOA, and more.

    Open Access and Free Software share a same objective for different
    types of works: sharing knowledge.

  16. Conclusions and Future Work

    WSL has now an open access repository to share all published
    papers. We expect it to be useful for past and future authors.

    Now our goal it to index the repository in different scientific
    databases, like BDBComp, DBLP, Google Scholar, and more. That
    will increase the visibility of the papers published in WSL,
    improving the access to the free software research published in
    WSL.
