From CNI and JISC:
Over the last decade or so, travellers moving towards an open future for scholarly communications have picked up their pace, spurred on by shifts in public perceptions of openness and by evolving scholarly views and practices. National and international initiatives from governments and funders have provided fresh incentives so that, in the summer of 2014, the time was right for a review of achievements so far and an exploration of emerging issues and points of interest.
At CNI, we believe that this move towards openness is really a social and philosophical phenomenon that is both broad and deep and that it is going to have lasting effects not only on the world of scholarship, but also beyond. We believe that it is important to continue looking at both specifics and at the very broad picture, and we hope that our new report will be a helpful step in continuing that conversation.
