Shawn Mathur and four co-authors, Open access and beyond, Molecular Cancer, September 6, 2006.  Excerpt:

Abstract:   Uncensored exchange of scientific results hastens progress. Open Access does not stop at the removal of price and permission barriers; still, censorship and reading disabilities, to name a few, hamper access to information. Here, we invite the scientific community and the public to discuss new methods to distribute, store and manage literature in order to achieve unfettered access to literature.
