Academic paywalls mean publish and perish – Opinion – Al Jazeera English

On Friday last week I got round to uploading this material on to slideshare.

It is a seminar presentation on Open Access and Open Source that criticises the current publishing and teaching systems’ dependence on market based models which lock our work away into silos of inaccessibility.

Today I read this opinion piece on Al Jazeera which quite clearly complements my own thoughts (not that my work had anything to do with the Al Jazeera article!).
