We Think Open Access To Research Is Important… But The Reasons Why Are Behind This Paywall

It would seem that with all the concern about how we are falling behind other countries in science and technology increased access would be priority. The editorial does have one great idea though. “Thus, for instance, an agency might choose to work with its stakeholder communities to provide robust public access to journal articles on publisher Web sites, rather than constructing and paying for a centrally operated repository.” Put articles online rather than in a building, what an idea.
