Today an enormous amount of problems in building a system of efficient education and science is on the discussion agenda in Ukraine. A decrease in the number of scientists in the country has been observed in the last 15 years. At the same time, the amount of postgraduate students and people aiming at obtaining their doctorate is increasing. Notably, similar indicators are also observed in the majority of post-soviet countries. One complicating factor is that the system of scientific personnel training in Ukraine is very restrictive and closed. The proportion of research results published using a free access scheme to the overall bulk of publications is still very small, in particular if compared to the level of ICT development. Therefore, a major part of the publications still remains inaccessible from the outside. In this study we investigate the openness and accessibility of the preparation of the academic staff in Ukraine. To partly overcome some of the problems, we propose an our vision on ICT development of DC & GS infrastructure. In this article we analyzed the performance of DC and GS through their web indicators.
