Open Access by Peter Suber
Peter Suber provides an introduction to what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. Distilling a decade of Suber’s influential writing and thinking about open access, this is the indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, publishers, and policy makers (exerpt from publisher's website). Open Access received the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title for 2013.
