On-line journal facility
Now, living in Hamburg, I can access almost on-line international journals in oceanography for FREE because the Institute where I work for my PhD. subscribes to those online journals . I always try to read one paper everyday to get "up to date" information about oceanography. I think it will more useful for others if I can make article about what I've read and publish it in my oceanography blog (of course I will not just translate the paper to Indonesia language because of copyright issue).
So far, based on my experience, it is quite diffficult to get new scientific papers about oceanography in Indonesia library. Sometime, when I was in Indonesia, I have to contact my friends in Japan or somewhere else in developed countries to help me downloading the papers that I need and send them by e-mail. Of course, based on the policy from the publisher, this kind of "friend to friend order" is not allowed, but how can poor student like my self order the papers for $9.0/paper? In some cases, if the writers still have the copy, I can contact them and ask for the copy or digital form of their papers.
Well, I think, "famous" universities in Indonesia -such as ITB, UI, etc.- should think about give "up to date" on-line journal facility to their researchers, lectures staff, and students. On the other hand, students who have paid much money for their study should ask for it also to their university. Logically, how can they paid much money but got scientific facility in "minimalist" style, while their teachers also sometime very busy with their "private" projects and neglected their main job as teacher (honestly, I don't like this kind teachers!).
