    Hi!
    I see that you said a couple of words about OA and Scholarly Publishing.
    Can I be free to said a couple words too?
    Most journal articles are distributed via the World Wide Web, due to low distribution costs, increasing reach, speed, and increasing importance for scholarly communication.
    The main reason authors make their articles openly accessible is to maximize their research impact.
    The more the article is used, cited, applied and built upon, the better for research as well as for the researcher’s career.
    Scholars are paid by research funders and/or their universities to do research; the published article is the report of the work they have done, rather than an item for commercial gain.
    Open access to scholarly information has been a hot topic for debate among librarians, scholars, and publishers over the last few years.
    The growth of the open access movement is partially in response to the enormous costs of many scholarly journals.
