UC Librarians on OA2020

Feb 07, 2018

Rachael Samberg (UCB), Richard A. Schneider (UCSF), Anneliese Taylor (UCSF), and Michael Wolfe (UCD) published the article What’s behind OA2020? in the February 2018 issue of C&RL News. The article clarifies why four UC campuses chose to endorse Open Access 2020, "an international effort to convert the existing corpus of scholarly journals from subscription-based access to OA." The article explains the movement's "great promise for the broader OA movement" and addresses misconceptions and misunderstandings about what OA2020 represents.
