In this contribution, I examine the availability of Open Access (OA) literature in Nigeria and
suggest, against the thinking among experts in international financial institutions, that
massive injection of public funds into education, and higher education in particular will
advance adult education and development. I also suggest that a more inclusive OA discourse
will impact positively on adult education and development in Nigeria.
Peter Suber (2006) in “Open Access Overview”, retrieved May 5, 2006 from, indicated that “Open-Access (OA) literature is
digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.” What
makes literature OA, then, is that it has to be available on the Internet and readers do not
have to pay to read, copy, download and share information, so long as the author is
acknowledged and is not misrepresented. The literature shows that the discourse on OA and
the OA movement focuses a great deal on open access to peer-reviewed literature/scholarly
publications and their pre-prints.

Mejiuni, O.  2006.  Women are Flexible and Better Managers: The Paradox of Women's Identities, their Educational Attainments and Political Power. Abstract

Through a phenomenological reading of Nigerian women’s lived experiences, I examined the processes that account for the present low level of women’s participation in civic-political affairs and I argue that: there is magic consciousness in the religions and religious practices in Nigeria; that the official and unofficial presence of the religions in formal schools ensure that the beliefs and the values of their adherents fuse with the structure of the school (through the official and the hidden curriculum) and the larger society to construct an identity for women; and that the constructed identity represents a major factor in determining whether women have political power. I conclude that the potential for challenging and reordering the status quo exists in the women who perceive themselves as different from whom men would rather they are.

Mejiuni, O.  2013.  Women and Power: Education, Religion and Identity. Abstract

Education is an important tool for the development of human potential. Organizations and individuals interested in development consider knowledge, skills and attitudes, obtained through formal, non-formal and incidental learning, as invaluable assets. Therefore, it is necessary to reflect on fundamental elements that shape the process through which education is attained: How do people learn, and what are the conditions that facilitate effective learning? Answers to these questions demonstrate that no education can be politically neutral, because there is no value-free education.

The traditional or indigenous education systems in Nigeria, which covered (and still cover) physical training, development of character, respect for elders and peers, development of intellectual skills, specific vocational trainings, developing a sense of belonging and participation in community affairs, and understanding, appreciating and promoting the cultural heritage of the community were, and are, not value-free. In other words, the goals and purpose of education, the content, the entire process and the procedures chosen for evaluation in education are all value-laden.

This book attempts to show that the teaching-learning process in higher education, and religion, taught and learned through non-formal and informal education (or the hidden curriculum), and other socialization processes within and outside the formal school system, all interface to determine the persons that women become. This education enhances or limits women’s capabilities, whether in the civic-political sphere or in their attempts to resist violence. Hence, education and religion have ways of empowering or disempowering women.

Michael, O, Pitondo-Silva A, Silva L, Santos Ré A, Marcato P, Massaro T, Polizello A, Aires C.  2021.  Effect of Chitosan-Coated Nanostructured Lipid Carrier on Escherichia coli Biofilms, 2021/09/01. 11:1-8. Abstract

Antimicrobial delivery systems are useful tools to control biofilm growth on abiotic surfaces such as urinary catheter. The present study examined whether nanostructured lipid carriers coated with chitosan (NLC-chitosan) affected the growth of uropathogenic biofilms of Escherichia coli. NLC-chitosan was prepared using the emulsion and sonication method, and further characterized with respect to particle size, polydispersity index, and zeta potential. After determining the minimum inhibitory and bactericidal concentrations, E. coli biofilms were grown on catheter specimens (following a preliminary study in which E. coli was found to adhere better to the catheter surface than glass slide and plate). At the 48, 72, 96, and 120 h of growth, they were exposed to 0.9% NaCl solution (negative control), 0.12% chlorhexidine solution (positive control), or NLC-chitosan (final chitosan concentration of 0.28%). After 24 h of treatment, the biofilms were collected to analyze their bacterial viability. NLC-chitosan preparation had bimodal particle size distribution with mean size of 292.9 ± 2.5 nm and polydispersity index of 0.24 ± 0.03 and positive zeta potential (+19.1 ± 0.2) indicating the nanoparticle coating by chitosan. Compared with the control groups, NLC-chitosan affected bacterial viability of biofilms at all ages studied (p<0.05). NLC-chitosan can effectively control the growth of young and mature biofilms of uropathogenic E. coli.

Mickenautsch, S, Kopsala J, Rudolph M, Ogunbodede E.  2000.  Clinical evaluation of the ART approach and materials in peri-urban farm schools of the Johannesburg area, 2000/07/01. SADJ : journal of the South African Dental Association = tydskrif van die Suid-Afrikaanse Tandheelkundige Vereniging. 55:364-8. Abstract

In this study, 1,325 school children from 7 farm schools were examined. Their mean age (+/- SD) was 10.5 +/- 3.0 (range 6-11) years. At baseline, the mean DMFT score was 1.1 +/- 1.7 and 36.4% of the children had caries. The prevalence of fluorosis among the children was 12.6%. Curative treatment was offered to all the children. A total of 113 children (8.5%) with one-surface cavities on permanent teeth and without fluorosis were treated using the atraumatic restorative treatment (ART) approach. A total number of 163 cavities were included in the study, of which 82 were treated with Fuji IX glass-ionomer cement and 81 with Ketac-MOLAR (hand mix). One year after treatment, restoration and sealant parts of ART fillings were examined. Caries status was also determined. The placing of the ART fillings and their evaluation were performed by different practitioners. A total number of 108 restorations (58 with Fuji IX, 50 with Ketac-MOLAR) were evaluated. Results of ART fillings showed a survival rate of 93.1% with Fuji and 94.0% with Ketac-MOLAR. Retention of the sealant parts of ART fillings was observed in 81% of restorations with Fuji IX and 76% with Ketac-MOLAR, not connected to the filled cavity. Caries was absent on all teeth restored with Fuji IX and noted in only one tooth restored with Ketac-MOLAR, not connected to the filled cavity. The retention rate after a 12-month period was acceptable and ART approach proved to be an appropriate technique for restoring teeth in this population group. There were no statistically significant differences between the survival rates of the two glass-ionomer restorative materials (P > 0.05).
