English | Mar. 25, 2016 | ISBN: 0262029901 | 453 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Peter Suber has been a leading advocate for open access since 2001 and has worked full time on issues of open access since 2003.

As he writes now, "it was like an asteroid crash, fundamentally changing the environment, challenging dinosaurs to adapt, and challenging all of us to figure out whether we were dinosaurs."
