Open Access movement

The Open  Access movement is a social movement in academia, dedicated to the principle of open access — to information-sharing for the common good.

The movement traces its history at least back to the 1960s, but became much more prominent in the 1990s with the advent of the Digital Age. With the spread of the Internet and the ability to copy and distribute electronic data at no cost, the arguments for open access gained new importance.

Open access has since become the subject of much discussion among researchers, academics, librariansuniversity administrators, funding agencies, government officials, commercial publishers, and learned-society publishers. Although there is substantial (if not universal) agreement concerning the concept of OA, there is considerable debate about the economics of funding peer review in open-access publishing, and about the reliability and economic effects of self-archiving.
