Patricia Reaney, Scientists Push for Open Access, Reuters, November 24, 2003. Excerpt: "Scientific publishing may never be the same again if a group of crusading researchers have their way. Just as the Internet transformed the way the public get information, the founders of the non-profit Public Library of Science (PLoS) want scientific research to be freely available to everyone....Dr Pritpal Tamber, of the London-based open access publisher BioMed Central, agrees. He argues that much of scientific research is publicly funded so it should be freely accessible to everyone."
