A collection of posts about open access, open science, and related topics
Open Access isn’t my core research area, but with the far-reaching disruptions that open access seems to initiate, the topic is certainly a concern for me. I am pro open access. However, open access needs to deliver on the promise of creating more equality and breaking up power conglomerates. As this was largely not yet the case, I’ve developed a quite critical perspective on how open access proceeds. I hope to stimulate a discussion through this that will eventually help steer open access towards the more enduring (and less ROI-driven) ideals.
