Minutes for the Core Team conference call on Jan. 26, 2005 by Andy Scudder

Open Access

Need to work on basic infrastructure

  • Essential to
    • Recruiting
    • Keeping the group together
  • Open access is an issue that can cause real change and be ongoing, more than just our previous one-shot campaigns and contests
    • Has been a big draw in the past, for example at NYU people responded to learning more about open access
    • Answers the question of what we're doing about IP issues

Peter from Public Knowledge has some helpful links for Open Access

  • Abhay is our core team member in charge of Open Access

Important Organizations

  • The Alliance for Taxpayer Access
    • 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
