|Message from the NFAIS Executive Director:
Rising to the call to provide public access to government-funded research and increased threats of piracy, there’s a growing consensus on the need for journal publication reform. And the scholarly information community has been working more collaboratively than ever before to create solutions.
NFAIS Executive Director
In this issue of NFAIS Advances, check out Recapping the NFAIS public access webinar (or when did we all start getting along?), STM industry ‘too slow’ on content-sharing, and A Defense for the High Cost of Many Scientific Journals, as well as the NFAIS Community Forum, where I explore why free access doesn’t mean without cost.
