Open Access week 2012

It is again time for open access week. Like last year there will be one blog post a day during the week. The blog post cover different aspects of open access and now there is even a post about OER, Open Educational Resources. While waiting for the new posts you could read all, in this blog, previously published post about open access.

This blog post from Duke University on what open access is not also worth reading. To summarize it in short open access is not 1) more prone to absue than traditional subscribtion based journals, 2) open access is not just one thing, and 3) open access is not a business model.
