  • http://www.nature.com/nature/focus/accessdebate/23.html Subscription prices to academic journals rose 227% between 1986 and 2002 - four times higher than the consumer prices inflation rate. A personal subscription to Nature costs £135 per year (£1590 per year for a university) and a personal subscription to Science costs US $255.00 per year. Almost all of the work published in these journals is funded by taxpayer&apos;s money or by charities such as the Wellcome Trust and Cancer Research UK. Very few scientists in developing countries and very few patient support groups can afford subscription fees to scientific journals. Who owns this information? Who paid for it?

  • http://www.plos.org/ PLoS is a nonprofit open-access scientific publishing project aimed at creating a library of open access journals and other scientific literature under an open content license. It launched its first journal, PLoS Biology, in October 2003 and currently publishes seven journals, all containing peer-reviewed research.PLoS Core Principles: Open access. All material published by the Public Library of Science, whether submitted to or created by PLoS, is published under an open access license that allows unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Excellence. PLoS strives to set the highest standards for excellence in everything we do: in content, style, and aesthetics of presentation; in editorial performance at every level; in transparency and accessibility to the scientific community and public; and in educational value. Scientific integrity. PLoS is committed to a fair, rigorous editorial process. Scientific quality and importance are the sole considerations in publication decisions. The basis for decisions will be communicated to authors. Breadth. Although pragmatic considerations require us to focus initially on publishing high-impact research in the life sciences, we intend to expand our scope as rapidly as practically possible, to provide a vehicle for publication of other valuable scientific or scholarly articles. Cooperation. PLoS welcomes and actively seeks opportunities to work cooperatively with any group (scientific/scholarly societies, physicians, patient advocacy groups, educational organizations) and any publisher who shares our commitment to open access and to making scientific information available for the good of science and the public. Financial fairness. As a nonprofit organization, PLoS charges authors a fair price that reflects the actual cost of publication. However, the ability of authors to pay publication charges will never be a consideration in the decision whether to publish. Community engagement. PLoS was founded as a grassroots organization and we are committed to remaining one, with the active participation of practicing scientists at every level. Every publishing decision has at its heart the needs of the constituencies that we serve (scientists, physicians, educators, and the public). Internationalism. Science is international. PLoS aims to be a truly international organization by providing access to the scientific literature to anyone, anywhere; by publishing works from every nation; and by engaging a geographically diverse group of scientists in the editorial process. Science as a public resource. Our mission of building a public library of science includes not only providing unrestricted access to scientific research ideas and discoveries, but developing tools and materials to engage the interest and imagination of the public and helping non-scientists to understand and enjoy scientific discoveries and the scientific process.
  • Institutional Repositories http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institutional_repository An Institutional Repository is a site for collecting, preserving, and disseminating the intellectual output of an institution, particularly a research institution. Objectives: To create global visibility for an institution&apos;s scholarly research To collect content in a single location To provide open access to institutional research output by self-archiving it Oo store and preserve other institutional digital assets, including unpublished or otherwise easily lost (&amp;quot;grey&amp;quot;) literature (e.g. theses, technical reports)
