Blogs and RSS to spread the word about OA articles

Dave Hook, Why blogs & RSS feeds will help drive open-access journal publishing, The Industrial Librarian, August 1, 2005. Excerpt:
Here’s my prediction. The increasing popularity of blogs and RSS feeds will drive an increase in open-access professional journal publishing and will force many traditional, print-based publishers to consider offering at least some form of electronic distribution. The that the online open-access model can reach a wider audience at a faster rate than traditional print publishing can – and blogs and RSS feeds enable this to happen even more.
