Transforming Scholarly Publishing through Open Access: A Bibliography

Transforming Scholarly Publishing through Open Access: A Bibliography presents over 1,100 selected English language scholarly works useful in understanding the open access movement's efforts to provide free access to and unfettered use of scholarly literature. The bibliography primarily includes books and published journal articles. A limited number of book chapters, conference papers, dissertations and theses, magazine articles, technical reports, and other scholarly works that are deemed to be of exceptional interest are also included. The bibliography does not cover digital media works (such as MP3 files), news articles, editorials, interviews, letters to the editor, presentation slides or transcripts, unpublished e-prints, weblog postings, or e-mail messages.

The bibliography includes links to freely available versions of included works. Such links, even to publisher versions and versions in disciplinary archives and institutional repositories, are subject to change. Typically, URLs may alter without warning or automatic forwarding, and they may disappear altogether. Inclusion of links to works on authors' personal sites is highly selective. Links are checked as of 8/1/2010. Note that e-prints and published articles may not be identical.

Most sources have been published from January 1, 1999 through August 1, 2010; however, a limited number of key sources published prior to 1999 are also included.
