Splitting the Difference on Open Access: Brainlessness Masquerading as "Balance"
(1) Researchers' need (and reasons) for publishing in journals with high peer review standards are no secret (and nothing to hide or apologize for!) (2) The objective of OA is not to "kill the system" but to provide OA. (3) As usual, the false assumption is that OA = Gold OA publishing. (4) OA has nothing to do with "withholding submissions" or boycotting. (5) Both bills (FRPAA and RWA) are about mandating Green OA self-archiving.
