I love open access

IloveOAFollowing the publication in Le Monde newspaper of the article Savoirs. Un bien public convoité, [1] (Knowledge. A sought after public good) a community of university officials, teachers-researchers, publishers and library directors have wished to respond and express their support for open access to research results by publishing in Le Monde an opinion column entitled Qui a peur de l’open access? (Who’s afraid of Open Access?)

You can now back this movement by also signing the opinion piece on the site I love open access.

Le Monde has also subsequently launched an appeal for testimonies from people concerned: Chercheurs, quels sont selon vous les défauts du système actuel de diffusion des connaissances? (Researchers, according to you what are the flaws in the current system of disseminating knowledge?)
