Open Access bei Harvards Faculty of Arts and Sciences?

Heise schreibt, dass die geisteswissenschaftliche Fakultät in Harvard beschlossen hat, dass ihre Wissenschaftlicher Dokumente nur noch »kostenlos und frei verfügbar veröffentlichen« dürfen. Ausnahmen seien allerdings möglich.

In Harvard University Gazette wird Professor Stuart M. Shieber zitiert:

There is no question that scholarly journals have historically allowed scholars to distribute their research to audiences around the world. But, the scholarly publishing system has become far more restrictive than it need be. Many publishers will not even allow scholars to use and distribute their own work. And, the cost of journals has risen to such astronomical levels that many institutions and individuals have cancelled subscriptions, further reducing the circulation of scholars’ works.

Die Verlage scheinen wirklich überzogen zu haben.
