The project is currently running a survey to understand the perception of Open Access publishing in the academic/research community. You can participate in the survey by following this link.

    Thanks for posting about open access. To me open access is what science is about. Research is suppose to be shared so that other scientists can build on that work. Economically closed journals made sense in an age when the internet didn’t exists. But now we have organizations attempting to hold back the sharing of scientific insight solely for to sustain their outdated business models. This is a very bad thing for science.

    I post about open access on my blog

    I am an adept of old views, information should be free and open, so I think that Open Access is just a modified theory of Open Source, let’s hope that this project won’t stop working after 2 years.

    Same here, although I’m not sure what it means for reviewers. Do you any comments on that?
