Die Zukunft von Open Access

Derek Law, Delivering Open Access: From Promise to Practice, Ariadne, February 2006. [via OAN] Zwei Zitate´:

The cynical might also draw a parallel with the claim of music publishers to be acting in the interests of their bands and the claims of STM publishers to be acting in support of their authors.
