Go Open Access - I. What is Open Access?
Various Authors, Youtube, April 14, 2011.

Paul Vierkant writes, by email, "to promote understanding of Open Access, the information platform open-access.netinitiated a series of short films. In a charming and humorous manner, the value chain of academic publishing and the principles of Open Access are explained. The films (sponsored by the German Research Foundation, DFG) are in German and in English and will be gradually published on open-access.net's YouTube channel."
