Lördagen den 24 oktober enades EU ministrar om att göra det lättare för
alla att få del av vetenskaplig forskning utan att behöva betala dyrt.


      EU ministers agree plan to widen access to research

European Union ministers adopted a plan on Friday to make it easier for
people to access scientific research and to help spread innovation more
quickly across the 27-nation bloc....
The plan is expected to raise concern among publishers of scientific
journals, who fear losing revenue if research is made available free on
the Internet -- but to be widely welcomed by librarians, researchers and
funding bodies. EU Research Commissioner Janez Potocnik said publishers
should not be concerned, but the benefits of digital technology should
be used to the full.
"It's nobody's idea to destroy the publishing industry," Potocnik told a
news conference.
European researchers publish 43 percent of the world's research and
scientific publishing houses in the EU employ 36,000 full-time staff and
10,000 freelancers.
