  6. 6. Selected events in OA development 1997 Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) was founded by the Association of Research Libraries. “SPARC is an international alliance of academic and research libraries working to correct imbalances in the scholarly publishing system.” http://www.arl.org/sparc/about/index.shtml
  7. 7. 2001 The Open Society Institute convened a meeting where the "Budapest Open Access Initiative” (BOAI) was signed. Its definition of open access (OA), while refined by subsequent documents, remains the most influential one to this day: “The literature that should be freely accessible online is that which scholars give to the world without expectation of payment.” http://www.soros.org/openaccess/read.shtml
  8. 8. 2001 "An Open Letter to Scientific Publishers” was signed by 34,000 scholars and led to the establishment of the Public Library of Service (PLoS), an advocacy organization. The document calls for "the establishment of an online public library that would provide the full contents of the published record of research and scholarly discourse in medicine and the life sciences in a freely accessible, fully searchable, interlinked form.” http://www.plos.org/about/letter.php
