News from the open access movementJump to navigation
Jim Giles broke the story of the AAP hiring of Eric Dezenhall in Nature for January 24, 2007. Now Giles is telling more of the story.
In a post today at NewScientist's Short Sharp Science blog, Giles writes:
His story in NewScientist is TA and only the first two paragraphs are free online:
The leaked two-page Dezenhall proposal to the AAP is apparently unabridged. But it's a scanned image and I don't have time rekey it. However I recommend it for showing more than we've seen to date on (1) the strengths of the OA movement that worry the publishing lobby (called "the coalition" here, perhaps in anticipation of PRISM) and (2) the coalition strategies and tactics for persuading policy-makers to defeat OA initiatives.
Update. I just gained access to the full text of Jim Giles story in NewScientist. Here are some more excerpts:
