             [BOAI] September issue of the SPARC Open Access Newsletter from peters AT earlham.edu


* Announcement [cross-posted] *

I just mailed the September issue of the SPARC Open Access Newsletter.  In 
addition to the usual round-up of news from the past month, it takes a 
close look at a cluster of related problems:  stretching or diluting the 
term "open access" to cover all flavors of widening access, 
hesitating to 
praise steps that widen access if they stop short of full OA, and letting a 
fuzzy OA meme outpace the spread of the major public definitions from 
Budapest, Bethesda, and Berlin.  The issue also includes a reflection on 
September 11 three years later.
