We were intrigued when we heard about the term bibliodiversity and had to learn more. The result was this eyeopening talk with Dr Arianna Becerril-García. She is a professor at Autonomous University of the State of Mexico and executive director at Redalyc.
We talk about the differences in how we look at scholarly publications in the Global North and the Global South, how open access models are the standard in Latin America, how the current models promoted by the Global North are strengthening the current power relations in higher education and how it could look like. And finally, we talk about what we can all do to make bibliodiversity work for international diversity, collaboration and justice.
Since the interview bibliodiversity has become part of our vocabulary and a recurring theme in our conversations and adds new perspectives on the future of international research collaborations.
