Here is an interesting article by Stevan Harnad in The
Times Higher Education Supplement on the need for all
scietific and scholarly writings to be available free
online. Although he has specifically written about the
UK, it is applicable to India and other countries.
Librarians and information scientists should mobilise
public opinion in their institutions and elsewhere to
make free online access to all our research
publications a reality. We should talk to our clients
(researchers and doctoral students) and policymakers
(directors of labs, vice chancellors and heads of
departments). Happy reading and best wishes.
