AAA invites its members to think about OA

The February issue of Anthropology News is devoted to OA.  Anthropology News is published by American Anthropological Association (AAA), which encourages members to comment on the new AN articles through the AAA news blog.  The articles:

Comment.  The AAA has a history of opposing OA and disregarding the views of its members.  For some background, see my short SOAN articles from July 2006, November 2006, December 2006, or my many blog posts on the subject.  It looks like the February Anthropology News, and the invitation to members to comment, represent a thaw.  AAA members should take advantage of the opportunity and make their views known.
