A universidade de Harvard solicita aos professores que não publiquem em revistas científicas que exigem pagamento dos leitores. A luta por livre acesso à produção científica está se intensificando. Veja o artigo do Guardian em:

Robert Darnton, director of Harvard Library in an interview with the Guardian said:

“I hope that other universities will take similar action. We all face the same paradox. We faculty do the research, write the papers, referee papers by other researchers, serve on editorial boards, all of it for free … and then we buy back the results of our labour at outrageous prices.

“The system is absurd, and it is inflicting terrible damage on libraries. One year’s subscription to The Journal of Comparative Neurology costs the same as 300 monographs. We simply cannot go on paying the increase in subscription prices. In the long run, the answer will be open-access journal publishing, but we need concerted effort to reach that goal.” (emphasis added) – link http://rwer.wordpress.com/2012/04/25/harvard-university-urges-faculty-members-not-to-publish-in-or-serve-paywall-journals/
