Aaron Swartz, Greg Maxwell, et al have been vocal in their support of guerilla open access. While I am all for open access (or else why would I be here, right?), I have my share of doubts regarding the issue of embracing illegal methods to further the cause of open access.
In my third post in the series of posts, celebrating this year’s open access week, I take a look into the issue of guerilla open access and why I do not think this is the panacea we are looking for.
Check out my post: Guerilla Open Access.
What do you think?
Not everything is peachy in the world of Open Access publication, and in this next post, I tackle the issue of predatory open access. I have kept it short intentionally mainly because the issue is not something I want too many people to get too suspicious about and hence send out a wrong impression about the whole deal of Open Access. But, at the same time, I want everyone to be aware of what they are getting themselves into and not get duped by posers who are setting the open access revolution by several decades.

What has been your experience with these posers? Any of them got you? Drop by and leave a line!
Since I am out of medical school now, it is difficult to organize the on-ground events. However, this time around, I am going to celebrate OAW by writing about it on my online profiles.
Check out my opening post on the issue: So, You Hit A Paywall?
Hope you enjoy reading it. Cheers!
