Open access, online journals, peer review
Inside Higher Ed has an article on a debate at Indiana University over the relationship between free, online journals and peer review. A couple of weeks ago they covered a decision at Harvard University to make an open access repository of faculty publications the default option. And Savage Minds is talking about similar debates at Berkeley. It’s clear that this issue is gaining momentum and that a few universities are positioning themselves at the vanguard of the open access movement.
