Data as well as text is now ESSENTIAL - we should stop using “full-text” as it is dangerously destructive in science....
Need automated, instant, access to and re-use of millions of published digital objects. The Harnad model of self-archiving on individual web pages with copyright retained by publishers is useless for modern robotic science....
What must be done: ... Insist that all authors’ works are their copyright and re-usable under commons-like license.... Pay publishers for what added value they provide, not what value they control. Create a market where publishers have to compete with other ways of solving the problem (Google, folksonomies, etc.)...

The open access movement:
Putting peer-reviewed scientific and scholarly literature
on the internet. Making it available free of charge and
free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.
Removing the barriers to serious research.
