"A Look Back at 23 Years as an Open Access Publisher"

I've released "A Look Back at 23 Years as an Open Access Publisher."

Here's an excerpt:

On June 29, 1989, I established the PACS-L LISTSERV mailing list, and, shortly after, I established The Public-Access Computer Systems Review, a freely available scholarly journal that was initially distributed using the LISTSERV software and the mailing list. Other freely available digital publications followed, technology evolved, "open access" became a movement with the Budapest Open Access Initiative in 2002, and, 23 years later, I'm still publishing open access works.

To date, my major open access publications have been:

The Public-Access Computer Systems Review and Public-Access Computer Systems News were published by the University of Houston Libraries. The Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography and the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Weblog were also published by the University of Houston Libraries through version 64 of the bibliography (10/17/2006).

My digital press, Digital Scholarship, was established in April 2005. Digital Scholarship began publishing the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography and the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Weblog starting with version 65 of the bibliography.

Other works listed above were published by Digital Scholarship.

From April 2005 through May 2012, Digital Scholarship had over 10.7 million visitors from 228 counties and over 51.5 million file requests, including over 35.1 million page views.
