OA-evangelisten Steven Harnad förordar piskan som vanligt för
att tvinga forskarna in i arkiven. Det får mig att tänka på Stalins
tvångskollektivisering och Maos Stora Språng då massornaskulle
tillverka stål på bakgårdarna.

Nu har Nederländerna en tradition av öppenhet och frihet vilket
Harnad ser som en orsak till det dyrbara OA fiaskot i Nederländerna.
