Open Access to Academic Journals? – Some thoughts from Mary Beard

Yeah, I know, I’m doing the cheeky ‘middle of writing thesis’ thing and just giving you links to thought provoking articles. Specifically, yet another Mary Beard article. Mary Beard is specifically discussing an article from The Guardian (here), and my impression is that she’d support subscriptions at a more reasonable level (like the $50 per annum that I used to pay for a subscription to Time).

Her post can be read here.

I would love to know what everyone thinks about this. I admit that I have only done as much reading on the topic as I’ve include in the links, but I would welcome more information!
