Longish article on open access with a specific focus on Canadian issues, which I enjoyed. Good coverage, including reporting on lobbying against open access in the U.S., coverage of SSHRC deliberations on the issue, and accounts of some specific cases, such as IRRODL's attempt to get funding while functioning as an open access journal. The trend toward open access is well represented, and according to the author, the major barrier lies in academic itself - Canadian academics do not yet understand open access and are more focused on publication rather than distribution.
