dc.description.abstractDemocratisation of education is the need of the hour across the globe. Before it is done, education needs to be liberated from the cost circumference in addition to removing other barriers. The “Open” movement is one such initiative that reduces the cost concerns while reaching the masses with quality educational resources. The present volume provides a broad spectrum of different dimensions of the “Open” movement, especially open educational resources, be they open access journals or open textbooks. The book is divided into four sections spread over 22 chapters. While the first section, “Introduction”, acquaints the reader with the concepts of “Open” especially inclined to OER, the second section, “Open Practices”, elaborates different “Open Practices” in the area of discipline of psychology. The third section, “Case Studies”, presents the current scenario of “Open” initiatives from the glimpses and experiences of the personal journey of the authors. The last section, “Conclusion”, closes the theme of the book.en_US
