Open Source Initiative (OSI)
http://opensource.org/

Open source is a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process. The promise of open source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in. The Open Source Initiative (OSI) is a non-profit corporation formed to educate about and advocate for the benefits of open source and to build bridges among different constituencies in the open-source community. One of our most important activities is as a standards body, maintaining the Open Source Definition for the good of the community. The Open Source Initiative Approved License trademark and program creates a nexus of trust around which developers, users, corporations and governments can organize open-source cooperation.

Academic Open Internet Jornal (AOIJ)
http://www.acadjournal.com/

The Academic Open Internet Journal aims to promote the use of the Internet and development of network resources to enable scientists to better communicate. This journal will provide a mechanism for academic researchers to publish their research in developing newtechniques, new resources, new databases, etc. on the Internet for use by all scientists. Academic Open Internet Jornal (AOIJ) was established by Sotir Sotirov,PhD and Andrey Nenov,MSc in april of 2000. The AOIJ publishing papers from scientists from around the world to view the technical advances of that century. The motto states: “Let’s make science closer to Information technologies”.
