The battle over OA publishing

Norm Medeiros, Of budgets and boycotts: the battle over open access publishing, OCLC Systems and Services, 2004. Only this abstract is free online, at least so far: "This article recounts the history of electronic journals, and the evolution of library processes to manage them. The article reviews recent controversies regarding the future of electronic publishing, and describes one important and innovative electronic publisher, the Public Library of Science."

Update. Norm has created an OA edition of his article by depositing it in E-LIS. Thanks, Norm!
