Two and a half decades into the open access (OA) movement, rapid changes in
scholarly communication are creating significant demands on scholars.
Today’s scholars must wrestle with meeting funder mandates for providing
public access to their research, managing and preserving raw data,
establishing/publishing open access journals, understanding the difference
between “green OA” and “gold OA,” navigating the complicated issues around

materials. *These

assist scholars with the scholarly communication process.*
