Scientific knowledge from the Global South is very much underrepresented  in the collective scientific output worldwide. This is not different for Open Access publishing. DOAJ ambassadors worldwide  have been educating publishers from their region on Good Open Access publishing practices based on DOAJ criteria and on the use of CC licenses.
