  • Open access is an issue that can cause real change and be ongoing, more than just our previous one-shot campaigns and contests

    • Answers the question of what we're doing about IP issues
  • Peter from Public Knowledge has some helpful links for Open Access
  • We want to 'sell' university libraries on the cost and research benefits of carrying Open Access journals

Important Organizations

    • Universitys joining with this org and open access journals can help NIH fulfill their mission
  • NIH - wanted to open up Medical research immediately after publication, but is being pushed back constantly
    • This is inexcusable, because medical research changes so quickly


  • Read Peter's links
    • talk to him about our position/plan for Universities
  • Find out the policies on your campus, update the core/wiki (section coming soon) on what the situation's like at your university
    • Develop stratiegies in response
