Access to information is a basic human right.
Free exchange of scientific information forms the basis for economic, cultural, social and scientific development. Unfortunately the free exchange of information is severely compromised by the restricted access model of scientific publishers and the dependency of scientists on the publication of results in high impact restricted access journals.
This year the week of 24-30th of October is…Continue
