Open Access Week conversations

Catholic University - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 09:40

Are we ready to have conversations about Open Access?

Barbara Fister, from the library trenches, posts this article commenting on the recent court case ruling about e-reserves.

She asks if all of us are ready to talk about how the scholarly publication process – publishing and access – can be better at spreading knowledge.

Open Minds, Open Access by Barbara Fister

…if future publications are open access it could save us all a lot of anguish and (even better) knowledge could spread much more easily and widely. The money, and the future, is already here. It’s just distributed badly. We can do better, and we will, slowly but surely.
