You Say You Want a Revolution? - Open Access on the March
Abby Clobridge has published a brief, though informative, overview of the Open Access movement over the past year or so. Her article is entitled "You Say You Want a Revolution? - Open Access on the March" and it appears in the March/April 2013 issue of Online Searcher. After focusing on recent OA developments in the "watershed year" of 2012, Clobridge discusses such topics as funding models to support OA publishing, OA awareness, advocacy, author rights, library as publisher, repository management, how to find OA content. She also briefly considers the important question of how to measure the impact and value of open access.
