Open standards / open source

James Dalziel, Open Standards Versus Open Source in E-Learning, Educause Quarterly, 4 (2003) pp. 4-7. Not on open access, but a good discussion these two kindred concepts, showing for example how priced and closed-source software can comply with open standards. In our domain, think of the ingenta version of eprints, which complies with the open OAI standard. (Thanks to Gary Price.)
