From Mike Taylor

"The US Research Works Act would allow publishers to line their pockets by locking publicly funded research behind paywalls....This is the moment academic publishers gave up all pretence of being on the side of scientists...."

Comment: This strongly-worded piece is accurate. The only qualification I'd make is that publishers are not monolithic. On this front, for example, some support the RWA and some don't. Those that don't, especially if they are also members <> of the Association of American Publishers <>, which lobbies for the RWA in the name of its members, should quit the AAP or publicly disavow its RWA campaign <>.
