Open access tools
Over at Savage Minds, Rex has just posted an incredibly useful piece on the process he went through to negotiate open access rights to an article that he published with the journal Games and Culture. He describes all of the tools that are available for finding out the policy of each journal regarding open access and links to sites that provide tools for authors to write addenda to the copyright contracts they sign with journals. He also reminds us all to get off our butts and send our pre-print publications, theses, dissertations, etc. to the Mana’o open access repository.
