Revision as of 20:33, 3 March 2020

I've written a lot over the years about open access to research. This bibliography of my writings on OA focuses less on news and more on commentary and analysis &#151; pieces that may still be of interest. It includes books, newsletter essays, journal articles, preprints, and interviews. I omit pure news pieces, as well as minor pieces like blog posts, listserv messages, letters to editors, presentation slides, and small web pages. I plan to keep it up to date. &#151; Peter Suber.

  • Suggested short URL for this page = bit.ly/suber-oa-writings.
  • This version of the list (started August 2013) supersedes an earlier version.
  • For my work on topics other than open access, see my separate list of writings.
  • Originally I included interviews on this list only when they were writings. But after a while that seemed arbitrary and I began including video and podcast interviews as well. As a result, the list is now more complete even if the title is less accurate.
  • My ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is 0000-0002-3577-2890. Most of the works below appeared before ORCID existed. But I support ORCID and include my ID here to help associate it with my writings.
