Open Access News

Any discussion of open access, whether to information, software, knowledge systems, etc., invariably has to include the enabling capacity and function of cyberinfrastructure. In that vein, it seems appropriate to give a nod to some of the folks that are driving the Open Access (note the proper noun) movement. So here ya go.

Peter Suber, Research Professor of Philosophy at Earlham College, UK, and Senior Researcher at the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), has a great Open Access Overview that serves as a solid guide for the Open Access initiative proper, whose goal is free, online, open scholarship. To stay up to date with the latest in the movement, you should consider visiting Suber’s Blog, appropriately titled Open Access News. We’ve even added it to our own Blog list.
