A presentation on the two-decade rise of open access publishing models, setting out the open access story of global impact, top-ranked journals, fee and no-fee journals, mega-journals, academic freedom and scholar-publishers, and, yes, "predatory OA publishers." John Willinsky has been studying this opening of research and scholarship for the last fifteen years, while actively contributing to its development.

Join us

At Stanford's Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center our mission is to enable biomedical discovery by connecting people with knowledge.  

As part of this mission, we advocate for open access to all forms of knowledge. The global Open Access movement has vastly increased access to journal articles, data sets, and other knowledge media. Yet, many of these valued scholarly resources are only available to those who pay for access.
