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.
