Taxpayers spend $140 billion funding science each year — but can't access many of the results

"This is an almost naked admission that [the government] is trying to preserve this $10 billion a year industry," said Eisen. "The tragedy is that it's not a new observation. It's as true today as it was 20 years ago."

As funders of research, universities themselves should be looking to organise an open-access fund that contributes to the establishment of the enabling environment for the open-access business model.
