From the National Library of Sweden (via Google Translate):
Research funding should go to research, not to the publishers!
That is the message in the call for Open Access as the organization League of European Research Universities, LERU, initiative. The signatories want the EU and the future Dutch Presidency of the EU will work with all user groups and agencies involved in research, scientific publishing and research, to find a lasting solution to the big problem of increasing costs of scientific publishing.
It is important that we increase efforts to achieve open access to scientific publications and it is obvious that the Royal. Library endorses LERU petition says National Librarian Gunilla Herdenberg.
