Abstract:
This paper examines the use of open access journals by academic libraries in the developing world: are open source journals a good choice for universities in the developing world, and to what extent are they currently being used? So far, the developing world has been held back from participating in that flow by three blockages: the costs of purchasing journals to read, the costs of publishing researching in journals, and censorship. I argue that truly open access requires removing all three blocks, for the sake of human development.
