Abstract:  The goal of this paper is to review critically the concept of "open access" of the Open Access Initiative (OAI), and consequently their policies. Considering the technological and behavioral changes underway in society, we advocate a broader scope of the meaning of “open access”. This includes looking at the issue of the intense public funding for research, the diverse forms of copying and dissemination (not just periodicals) and the need to include in the current agenda a broad reform of copyrights.
