Cross Purposes - Open Access Archivangelism

Amsciforum 2015-06-05

Summary:

The purpose of “repository-focused green open access” is not -- and never has been -- "to prompt libraries to cancel journal subscriptions, forcing publishers to restrict themselves to coordinating peer review at a vastly reduced price from that currently charged for journal-focused “gold” open access" (though that is indeed what I think will be the eventual outcome). The purpose of green open access, mandated by universities and funders, is (and always has been) open access. Open access (Gratis) means immediate (un-embargoed), free online access to the final peer-reviewed drafts of peer-reviewed journal articles.
