About this book home page

  • I don't plan to add the kinds of extensive updates and supplements that I added to my 2012 book, Open Access. However, earlier in planning with MIT Press, I thought about writing a postscript of "second thoughts" for each piece in the collection. But in the end we dropped the idea. The second thoughts would enlarge the book and force us to drop several of the primary articles themselves. However, I might add some of those second thoughts here.
  • The book contains 44 articles, which is about one-fifth of the articles I've published on OA. One day I might use this page to point to some I like best that didn't make it into this collection. Meantime, see this pretty complete list of my writings on OA.
