+ - Great Britain to grant free access to publicly funded research within 2 years->

Submitted by alfachino
alfachino (728739) writes "The British government is preparing to reveal their plans to allow all publicly funded scientific research to be accessed by anyone, anywhere. Although this is the right step in the right direction, there is some criticism as to how this transition should take place, who should pay for it, who benefits the most from it, and whether this will be a catalyst for other EU nations and the US to get their act together and head in the same direction. It seems like the Elsevier boycott may have had more effects after all."
