English abstract

Open-access literature is online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Open access will solve the pricing crisis, which prevents libraries from buying access to all the literature their patrons need, and the permission crisis, which prevents libraries and their patrons from making full and legitimate use of the material for which they have paid.

Item type: Journal article (On-line/Unpaginated)
Keywords: open access, pricing crisis, permission crisis, price barriers, permission barriers, access barriers
Subjects: E. Publishing and legal issues.
