More on the economic impact of OA

John Houghton, Uncovering the social and economic benefits of open access, a 27 minute podcast from JISC, August 25, 2008.  From the blurb:

Professor John Houghton's work to explore the social and economic impact of open access has had a significant impact on debates in his native Australia. Currently working for JISC to investigate the UK experience in this area, he talks to Philip Pothen about his work, the wider benefits of institutional repositories and why he thinks the open access argument is now won.
