    • Journal price increases outstripping budget:
      • Prices increase an average of 8-10% each year
      • Library budget has remained static for 10 years
      • Rising prices result in cancelations; faculty do not have access to all the research they need
    • While not a solution to journal pricing, open access breaks down barriers ; can increase access to research and create greater impact.

    • “ Even though journal prices have risen four times faster than inflation since the mid-1980's, the purpose of OA is not to punish or undermine expensive journals , but to provide an accessible alternative and to take full advantage of new technology —the internet— for widening distribution and reducing costs. Moreover, for researchers themselves, the overriding motivation is not to solve the journal pricing crisis but to deliver wider and easier access for readers and larger audience and impact for authors. “

    • Green OA: an article that has been deposited into a repository such as a university archive or subject repositories such as PubMed. In most cases there is no cost to deposit the article, making it OA. There is sometimes a time lag from the time of publication. According to Peter Suber, this term may be applied "to any version of an article: a preprint, the published edition of the postprint, or the peer-reviewed but not copy-edited version of the postprint." Many funding agencies are mandating or considering mandating Green OA for the articles that result from their funding.
