Open Access News
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has been brought in by the UK government to help make all taxpayer-funded academic research in Britain available online to anyone who wants to read or use it. The initiative is expected to be up and running in the next two years, and was announced by the universities and science minister David Willetts in a speech to the Publishers Association. As a well known supporter of free and open access to information on the web, Wales will help set up the next generation of open access platforms for UK researchers, as well as the format in which academic papers should be published and data standards. It is expected that this initiative is most likely to result in a central repository that will host all research articles that result from public funding.
