The Imaginary Journal of Poetic Economics: June 30, 2013 Dramatic Growth of Open Access | Open Access News from the RSP team | Scoop.it

"Kudos to the Directory of Open Access Journals for an oustanding second quarter! In the past few months, DOAJ has added 912 titles for a total of 9,759 journals. That's a net growth rate of over 10 titles per day, up from the previous rate of over 3 titles per day. At this rate it won't be long before DOAJ exceeds the milestone of 10,000 journals.

"Now that my book on OA (Open Access, MIT Press, 2012) is OA, you can download it in many formats from many places.
http://bit.ly/oa-book ;

But if you'd rather read it online without downloading, I can recommend the reading edition produced by the Internet Archive:

* Viewing one page at a time:
http://archive.org/stream/9780262517638OpenAccess/9780262517638_Open_Access#page/n0/mode/1up ;

* Viewing two pages at a time:
http://archive.org/stream/9780262517638OpenAccess/9780262517638_Open_Access#page/n0/mode/2up ;

This edition has the very useful feature of supporting deep links to individual pages. I love that. I just used it to enhance my collection of book updates and supplements. Now an entry updating page n links directly to an OA edition of page n. Check it out.
