Springer’s Open Choice ist kein Open Access

Springer’s neues Geschäftsmodell Open Choice (gebloggt am 5.7.04) wird von Jan Velterop von BMC in Newswire der Open Access Gedanke abgesprochen: „Springer’s program breaks from that [Open Access] definition is some key ways. [It also forbids] copying, reproducing, distributing, or posting of the publisher’s version of the article on a third party server. That makes guaranteeing open access in perpetuity virtually impossible.“ Aus Open Access News
