Open Access Most of the 2.5 million articles published each year in the world’s 24,000 peer-reviewed journals are closed to many of their potential users, because they cannot afford access. The solution to this problem is open access. Lets talk about that! Open design A discussion list for those who want to get involved in the open design and hardware space.
