«Dans presque tous les pays du monde, la recherche est soutenue par les fonds publics. Quand les chercheurs publient leurs résultats dans les revues scientifiques, ils le font gratuitement. Ces résultats sont aussi évalués bénévolement par leurs pairs. Et les revues exigent très souvent qu'on leur cède les droits sur ces mêmes articles. Par la suite, les éditeurs ou les grandes sociétés savantes vendent leurs revues à prix d'or aux bibliothèques... financées aussi par des fonds publics! On se retrouve dans une boucle sans fin où l'argent des contribuables paie la production de la recherche et l'accès à la recherche pendant que les éditeurs et les sociétés savantes tirent des profits de 30 à 45 % de cette opération, avant impôts. C'est scandaleux!» s'exclame Jean-Claude Guédon.

A year in Open Access advocacy: 2012

A year in Open Access advocacy: 2012 | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
Of course, not all the advocacy was directly for OA, some was for general reform of the scholarly communications system as a whole, redressing the imbalance between the power of publishers and libraries.

Elsevier Collaborates with the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to Increase Access to and Visibility of Research - GFII

Washington, D.C., October 29, 212 – Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has incorporated 300,000 full-text technical reports from the Office of Scientific Technical Information (OSTI) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) into its free scientific search tools, SciVerse Hub and Scirus.

This addition will enable the global research community to search full-text documents from laboratories affiliated with the DOE on Elsevier’s widely-used platforms. The OSTI collects, preserves, and disseminates DOE-sponsored research results from R&D projects or other funded activities at DOE labs nationwide, and from grantees at universities and other institutions.

“We at OSTI are committed to ensuring the Department of Energy’s R&D results are made broadly accessible so that scientific discovery is advanced,” said Dr. Walter Warnick, OSTI Director. “This collaboration with Elsevier certainly helps meet our goal.”

Full-text documents provided through OSTI cover topics related to DOE's mission, including physics, chemistry, materials, biology, environmental sciences, energy technologies, engineering, computer and information science, renewable energy, and more.

“This collaboration will provide both Elsevier and OSTI users with more comprehensive results and improved discoverability of information,” said Olivier Dumon, Managing Director for Elsevier’s Academic & Government Research Markets. ”We believe the quality content from each source will greatly enhance our offerings.”

As such, Elsevier is also including over 100,000 documents from the DOE in Elsevier Biofuel, a research discovery solution tailored to bio-energy and bio-based products. These papers, mostly technical and program reports, contain research, practical information and facts about technology, projects and production around the world.
