Peter Suber on BOAI 15
The Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) turned 15 years old this year. As 2017 comes to a close, Richard Poynder, a scholarly communication journalist, asked the following question of several leading voices in the movement: “what should the stakeholders of scholarly communication be doing now to fully realise the vision outlined at the Budapest meeting?”
We’re still reading many of the responses, but wanted to point out that 0f Peter Suber, philosopher, professor and Open Access advocate. Suber is Director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication, Director of the Harvard Open Access Project, Senior Researcher at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, and widely regarded as the de facto leader of the open access movement. Suber’s response is thorough, wide-ranging and comprehensive. It’s broken down into advice for researchers, institutions, librarians and even publishers. It’s well worth a read!
