Talk given at the BOBCATSSS 2015 conference - http://www.bobcatsss2015.com/.

This paper addresses the problem of open access, with special reference to scientific papers. Scientific communication is the most important for the development and progress of science; it allows scientists to exchange information and experiences. The paper will present results of a study conducted in order to determine how many scientists in the field of information sciences in Croatia are ready to give their papers in open access. The results consist of a quantiative data from analyzing Croatian National Bibliography, and of qualitative data from a survey which provides better understanding of attitudes towards the open access.
