As a con­cept and prac­tice, open ac­cess has al­ways been hea­vi­ly
de­ba­ted; by open ac­cess ad­vo­ca­tes, but also by the wi­der aca­de­mic
com­mu­ni­ty as part of the de­ba­te over the fu­ture of scho­lar­ly
com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. From an in­iti­al sub­ver­si­ve pro­po­sal (Har­nad),
open ac­cess has in­cre­a­sin­gly tur­ned into ac­cep­ted prac­tice,
pro­mo­ted by go­vern­ments, in­sti­tu­ti­ons and busi­nes­ses ali­ke.
whi­le gro­wing in po­pu­la­ri­ty, the strugg­le over its spe­ci­fic
im­ple­men­ta­ti­on in pu­blis­hing and scho­lar­ly com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on is
on­go­ing and per­haps even more ur­gent than ever.*
