Most scholars concerned with open access are aware of Charles Bailey’s bibliography of open access. I’ve also been collecting a more modest list of papers and sites that I’ve read in the last few years, and that underpin a lot of the work that we do here at Leicester. I brought this collection together as part of the handout for the postponed academic staff session on open access and scholarly communication. Rather than let it sit festering on my hard-drive until I deliver the session in March, I’ve made it available on the LRA’s Web pages. And will be updating it from time to time as I read new papers or sites of interest.

What are the three best articles on open access?
Not the ones that I might like but the key ones that I should/could/might get my academics to read.
Not necessarily ones that will have them convinced or arch-evangalising left right and centre, but ones that really give a rich overview of the topic. Ones that even bring some academic rigour to the discipline, some facts and figures as much as hearts and minds. Ones, like the THE, that take a look at all the stakeholders and try to offer a dispassionate overview (or as dispassionate as it is possible to get!).
They don’t have to be peer reviewed, they can be reports, they can be briefings, they can be conference papers – they just have to be accessible and credible.
And here’s the trick – they have to be available, in full-text in an open access repository! Suggestions welcomed and indeed warmly invited – but no more than three per commenter!!!
