US library researchers add to demand for open access

Demands for an end to the existing for-profit research journal model roll on

The US Association of College and Research Libraries has reinforced its 2016 statement on open access to publications in library science (thanks to a learned reader for the pointer).  Academic library researchers should, “publish in open access venues, deposit in open repositories, and make openly accessible all products across the lifecycle of their scholarly and research activity.” The association adds publishers should, “implement open practices throughout the editorial process and adopt models to make publications, data, and associated scholarly products openly accessible without embargo.”
