Abstract(s)Technological platforms and infrastructures for managing science have been under debate worldwide, being well-grounded and widely deployed concepts in developed countries. Although the emerging interest of developing countries in these topics is evident, much work has to be done to promote the national scientific production and the availability of scientific contents without restrictions. As a vehicle for knowledge sharing, National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) play a key role in science growth and Open Access (OA) deployment. In addition, the Current Research Information System (CRIS) has emerged as an embracing paradigm for managing the multitude of science components and players. Instantiating these concepts and directives in the science ecosystems of developing countries will allow to save years of progress, bringing these countries directly into a high-level regarding science management.In this context, taking Mozambique as a case study, this work discusses the problematic of science growth in developing countries and identifies hurdles and strategies for building OA repositories supported by the Mozambican NREN MoRENet, and for implementing technological platforms for managing science.The evaluative open science service model here proposed, aiming at empowering the evolution of knowledge in Mozambique, is sustained by the study of international directives regarding NRENs and OA, CRIS trends, and the Mozambican science and education ecosystem.
