“Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions…OA is entirely compatible with peer review, and all the major OA initiatives for scientific and scholarly literature insist on its importance.” Peter Suber: http://www.openaccessweek.org/wp-content/uploads/a-very-brief-intro-a4.pdf
