Impact of Social Sciences – Open Access definitions vary but authors must be reminded that giving up copyright is just folly. 2014-09-12


"The heart of the debate on open access to research is over licencing. A sharp schism has emerged between those who think the no restrictions CC-BY licence is indispensable, and those who think other licences such as the non-commercial CC-BY-NC or non-derivative CC-BY-ND, is good enough. In the software world, licensing was a similar sticking point between free software and open source advocates. Glyn Moody draws on the lessons learned from the software debate and pulls apart the key areas of division for the research community."
