Open Access to Research

Stevan Harnad at the University of Southampton is one of the champions of the open access movement; the idea that full and free access to (often) publically-funded research should be available to all. The momentum behind this concept is growing, and Harnad has been meeting with representatives of the publishing industry in order to thrash out a mutually agreeable strategy. I wish him the best of luck in this endeavour.
