    s available where you live and you have at least some money to afford an internet connection The dream of this universally accessible library with everything stored within it for all is an ancient one spanning back to the famed library of Alexandria Some contemporary projects such as the Internet Archive Wikipedia Google Books the HathiTrust Public Library of Science Library of Congress are attempting to realize these ambitions But the dream is not attainable Publishers have dominated this digital content with the creation of online journal databases since the 1980s and 1990s The monetization of past content in these online journals much of it scholarly in nature most of it transferred in terms of copyright to the publishers has served to close off complete accessibility to all but the richest of organizations Libraries usually provide this content to their users at no cost and so the actual expense of these resources usually remains invisible to their users But as recently as 2012 Harvard university one of the richest universities in the world with an endowment of approximately 30 billion has expressed concern that current price gouging of database aggregators is fiscally unsustainable If Harvard s hurting we re all hurting IV The United Colors of Open Access No Whammies please One of the proposed solutions to this growing amount of inaccessible content is the open access movement Open access comes in many colors including Gold Journals that fund publishing via Article Processing Charges APCs to authors Green usually institutional repositories holding pre prints or post prints of research and the lesser known Platinum benefactor or organization pays APCs Open access allows users to access content in perpetuity without having to worry about whether the works can or can t be used Copyright restrictions still will generally apply i e you can t wholesale copy and paste the work and then try to resell it but for the sake of academic disciplines scholars allow their work to be read and re used This increases the likelihood of their being cited and further increases their impact factor As seen in the graph below from a 2004 Brody Harnad and 2005 Hajjem et al study open access was found to increase the amount of citations of one s work Other studies confirm these results as well Overall open access has the ability to improve scholarly communication but from an economic point of view access is not profitable for publishing companies Publishers acting as the middle men in this case want to restrict access as a way to increase revenues Generally this is a reasonable economic approach In the face of demand restricting supplies can help to increase prices and profitability However in the case of publicly funded research it becomes absurd Publicly funded institutions are essentially providing the space and resources for research only to be forced to buy such research back when the results are published A double whammy so to speak Some may say that these institutions can afford it
