Open Access

So, I haven’t gotten on my soapbox in awhile, but I just went to an excellent discussion by Dr. Dan Cohen on Open Access Publishing and Scholarly Values hosted by MPublishing.  His talk looked at scholarly attitudes toward open access publishing and the definition of scholarly work in this changing publishing model.  I am certain that the talk will be posted soon, but I think it’s worth reading more of his work to get a true understanding of the value of open access work and its contribution to academia.

Here’s my stump speech again:

Information is the single most valuable commodity in the world.  Everyone has a fundamental right to it.  Everyone should have access to it.

Okay, enough from me for now.
