En storartad gåva kommer från Indien. Över en miljon tidskriftsartiklar
finns nu gratis tillgängliga på på den nyöppnade Open J-Gate. Den
kommer att växa med över 300.000 artiklar per år. Detta är verkligen
open access. Ett viktigt komplement till DOAJ i Lund som innehåller
lite över 83.000 artiklar ur 509 fackgranskade tidskrifter. Open J-Gate
har artiklar ur 1500 fria e-tidskrifter. Portalen är skapad av ett kommer-
siellt företag Informatics India Ltd. Ett exempel på hur den fria marknaden
kan vara ett stöd för fri publicering.

Databasen invigdes igår av den berömde litteraturprofessorn Jean-Claude
Guédon, som är en av de främsta företrädarna för fri publicering och fria
tidskrifter och samtidigt en av de främsta kritikerna av konsortieupphandlade

Det kan nämnas att Guédon är en av huvudtalarna vid:
