The Beauty of Open Access

The case for open access to scientific research is beautifully made by Peter Suber in the current SPARC Open Access Newsletter. In linking (which I’ve just done) I follow Glyn Moody. I will follow Glyn also in quoting Peter (although I won’t duplicate his quote).

When publishers argue that there are no access problems… that’s mistaken; there are deep and serious access problems; publishers who really don’t know this should should talk more to the libraries who subscribe to their journals, and even more to the libraries who don’t.
