The open access duumvirate calls on for-profit research publishers to make OA the new normal
“The time has come to make free and open access to all research a reality. It is critical that once the pandemic is over, in order to accelerate the global transition to free and open access, publishers do not once again restrict access to COVID-19 content. This will be especially crucial in light of the economic challenges all sectors of society will be facing, including universities dealing with constrained scholarly content budgets.” The Council of Australian University Librarians and the Australasian Open Access Strategy Group state. The two organisations drive Australia’s OA campaign.
