A truly open scholarly world affords opportunities to anyone who might be capable of contributing to diverse scholarly conversations. More fundamentally, it just seems intrinsically good that no one should be excluded from obtaining a record of what has been said by scholars. Despite those attractive virtues, open scholarship has not been realized, and it has come up against serious obstacles, several of which remain to be navigated. At RBB we’re paying close attention to these problems inside the article-publishing industry and now and then we like to update our readers on our thinking. Maij et al.’s article in this issue is Open Access and it has over 70,000 reads as of the time of writing; that says something about the power of Open Access.
