Entire library journal editorial board resigns, citing 'crisis of
conscience' after death of Aaron Swartz

In a dramatic show of support for the open access movement, the
editor-in-chief and entire editorial board of the Journal of Library
Administration announced their resignation last week. In a letter to
contributors, the board singled out a conflict with owners over the
journal's licensing terms, which stripped authors of almost all claim
to ownership of their work.
