Science must be liberated from the paywalls of publishers

Ball and Chain

  • As a scientist and citizen I want to see the universal adoption of the open access model of academic publishing, because it will be better for science and better for society. Open access, where costs are met upfront by the author and papers are free to readers, would improve science by making all published results and ideas easily accessible to researchers across the world and so fuel the engine of discovery. At present, far too much of our research is locked behind paywalls that restrict access and stall progress.
