I have decided to follow this call and to share an image visualizing what Open Access means to me.
In previous weeks I was writing a conference paper and this process took me to hell and back – hitting a paywall, before finally finding an open access article on my subject! By the way, on the occasion of Open Access Week, as a researcher working outside of academia, I would like to thank everyone who publishes papers in open access.
P.s. The new Open Access button was launched yesterday. Have you tried it yet?
