Submission + - Occupy ACM - No More Paywalls ->

mikejuk writes: The scandal that is the archaic practice of making money from research paid for by the public has raised its head once again. Perhaps now it is time for members of academic organizations such as the ACM to take the democratic lead and force open access policies. The ACM in particular needs to think again, but members probably shouldn't take the drastic step of leaving the ACM in protest. Instead what needs to happen is that the democratic process should take it course and scientists who naturally want a wide audience for their work should insist on open access.
