"Science is getting left behind. Streaming services have changed the TV and music industries forever – you can now access music and TV wherever you are in the world at a click of a button. According to Professor Jason Schmitt at Clarkson University, it is time for science to do the same: enable global open access to research. For too long, the public have remained unaware of the debate between traditional scholarly publishing methods and an open access model. Professor Schmitt’s upcoming film – Paywall: The Business of Scholarship – looks to change that, hoping to spark a public movement which breaks down the paywalls that limit access to research."
