This is an experiment in a wiki-based home page. For now, it's my main home page. If I decide the experiment is a failure, and shift to another page, I'll say so here and link to the new page.


I've written a lot over the years about <a href="http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/overview.htm">open access to science and scholarship</a>. This bibliography of my writings on OA focuses less on news and more on commentary and analysis &#151;that is, the pieces that may still be of interest. It includes books, <a href="http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/newsletter/archive.htm">newsletter</a> essays, journal articles, preprints, and interviews. I omit the pure news pieces as well as minor pieces such as blog postings, listserv messages, letters to editors, presentation slides, and small web pages. I plan to keep it up to date. ///mhyphen <a href="http://bit.ly/petersuber">Peter Suber</a>
