Open Access in India: Q&A with Subbiah Arunachalam

Richard Poynder, The Delicious Burden, Jun 10, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Credit where credit is due. "Today the world is awash with OA advocates," writes Ricahrd Poynder, "But it was not always thus." One of those early open access (OA) advocates in India was Chennai-based information scientist Subbiah Arunachalam. "What drives Arunachalam is a firm belief that open access holds out the promise of a faster and more effective system for creating and sharing new knowledge, one, moreover, that will not discriminate against the developing world in the way the current subscription system does." Good interview and kudos to Poynder for making sure it's on the record.
