Scholarly Communication Defined creating, disseminating and preserving scientific knowledge network of complex relationships between a number of players - authors, editors, publishers, distributors, librarians and most importantly consumers of scholarly information
Scholarly Communication in Crisis• Increasing control of scholarly journalsindustry by the commercials firms• High cost of scholarly journals verses lowlibrary budget• Shift from print to electronic form: the legalframework• Battle of ownership verses access• Advent of open access publishing is a directthreat to commercial publishers.• Growing awareness of utilization of moneygenerated from taxpayers
What is "Open Access"• According to"Budapest Open Access Initiative" (BOAI) – It’s free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited (http: //www.soros.org/openaccess/read.shtml).
BOAI recommend two complementary strategies for authors to participate in open access these are: Open Access Journals (Golden Road) Self-Archiving of E-Prints (Green Road)

SELF-ARCHIVING OF E-PRINTS "Self-archiving" refers to making "e-prints" available on the Web. An e-print is either a digital preprint or a postprint.
