"Open Access: why? A necessity to deal with the complexity of the scientific world
The amount of knowledge available today in any scientific field has literally exploded for 100 years. The combination of population growth and the increase in the average level of education on our planet has increased exponentially the population of seeking researchers and researchers who find (plus 56% between 2002 and 2007, or 9% per year) . We have also extensively explored the "simple solutions" of science. The new advances come and will come more and more from a mixture of knowledge in complementary fields: chemists, physicists, biologists, doctors, electronics engineers, computer scientists and many others can and must work together to build the new inventions or innovations of tomorrow . The fuel of this research, or the blood that irrigates this fantastic "global brain" is knowledge. And anything that hinders supply or traffic is harmful. When a researcher anywhere in the world is financially limited in his ability to publish or consult scientific articles, he loses efficiency, to the detriment of the well-being of the entire community"
