"whether you are assessing journals or researchers, nothing beats reading the papers and forming your own opinion"

“Some developments in intellectual property, notably in the field of patent law, have led to the appropriation of scientific knowledge that by its very nature should remain in the public domain, thereby jeopardizing its dissemination and further use.”

"I have been surprised to discover that early career researchers seem to be more digitally engaged and willing to experiment with online publishing formats, even though they have much less security than their senior colleagues since they are entering the job market at a very difficult and competitive time. So, in a sense, they often don’t have the luxury of being able to submit their work to be published in new ventures and are obliged to stick with well-known, “traditional” journals to give themselves the best chance of landing a job, or achieving tenure. But, despite this stark fact of job insecurity, younger scholars are nevertheless clearly interested in publishing their work open access and trying out the digital innovations that it can offer. They have also quickly realised how citations become multiplied when you publish online, which can really help a younger scholar’s career in its early stages."
Caroline Edwards is a Founder and Director of the Open Library of Humanities (OLH). In the interview with scilog the literary scholar explains how the platform wants to change academic publishing in the humanities and why it is crucial to get the community on board.

I spend my day (when I am not in meetings) in front of a computer. My “research”, like so many others in the field of cancer research…

It's often said that the French Revolution (1789-1799) created the 'blueprint' for all revolutions to come.

An interesting step forward...
It give the authors, in France, the right to make their papers available on line (green OA).
Unfortunately, it says: "his author HAS THE RIGHT to provide [...] a free availability in an open format".
"Has the right" is still far from "Must"...
Only those already convinced will use this right. My guess is that 5-15% will use it. We'll see.
 
France: The final text of the law for OA has been adopted
