In this concise introduction, Peter Suber tells us what open access is and isn't, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. Distilling a decade of Suber's influential writing and thinking about open access, this is the indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, publishers, and policy makers."--pub. desc.
[A] very important book...a must read for all scholars and researchers who publish their own work or consult the peer-reviewed published work of others--in other words, virtually all academics. --
