An interesting opinion piece on Open Access and the Humanities

Times Higher EducationThe latest issue of Times Higher Education contains an opinion piece  entitled
“Green open access can work for Humanities”  by Gabriel Egan, director of the
Centre for Textual Studies at De Montfort University, arguing that “the move to open access is desirable and inevitable for the arts as well as the sciences”.  By “the arts” he means, in accord with the British usage, what most of us would call “the humanities”, in general. You can access it here: http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/comment/opinion/green-open-access-can-work-for-the-humanities/2004323.article

This is not an unusually radical or visionary in formulation article, but a very strong and well argued plea, and one whose appearance academic librarians might want to take note of.
