The Promise and Peril of 'Open Access'

Lila Guterman, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Jan 29, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The headline writers put 'open access' in scare quotes, but CRLFthe author provided a good overview stating most strongly CRLFthe case in favour: "...Brain Research, which costs more CRLFthan $21,000 for 2004; Biochimica et Biophysica Acta, which CRLFcosts nearly $15,000; and Nuclear Physics A and B, at more CRLFthan $23,000." She also outlines the counter-argument CRLFoffered by academic societies, whic depend on publication CRLFincome, and responses from the publishers minimizing the CRLFimpact of open access publishing. Worth reading as well is CRLFthe online discussion with open CRLFaccess advocate Peter Suber hosted by the author.
