Stanford’s Open Source Free Public Information

Stanford Opens Access to All Its Education Studies, Education Week (2008), http://www.edweek.org (last visited  November 18, 2008).

Stanford, in the name of free information, made scholarly articles available to the public for free.  The move makes Stanford the first such school in the nation to join the growing “free access” movement in academia.  Only 15 percent of the 1,600 journals that are published globally are free.  Recently, the academias have felt a bit more generous with their brainy publications and have begun to let the public access their articles for free.   Does this mean the smaller universities will be able to step up and play with the big research universities in the world, probably so.
