The title for this blog comes from an article published in the University of Toronto Bulletin (11 October 2006), by Joan Leishman and myself, “Be openly accessible or be obscure?”,
An excerpt: “Patterns of scholarly communications are changing. Open Access(OA) archiving and OA publishing are receiving increasingly substantial support. ‘Be openly accessible or be obscure’ may soon join, or even replace, ‘publish in high-impact journals or perish’ as a mantra heard ad infinitum or nauseam by academics“.
My intention is to post comments relevant to this topic to this blog.
