Open Access and the Big Corporation

Though certainly not her main point, nor the focus of her remarks, I was taken with a remark that Barbara Peterson made about corporations and Open Access materials.

“The irony,” she said, “is that it’s the big companies who really need access to it [the literature], but they have the money to pay for it . . . they also have the money to pay to make the systems that will produce useful results across an open access collection.”
