Peter Suber’s “Six things that researchers need to know about open access”

Six things that researchers need to know about open access. ‘When I was a graduate student, my elders never took me aside to pass on the secrets of academic publishing. I hope this failure isn’t widespread and simply reflects on my discipline, my school, my decade, or perhaps even my elders. Today’s graduate students deserve a more effective rite of passage. But even if they’re told all they need to know about in-journals and out-journals (at least by the standards of their elders), publishing contracts, submissions etiquette, turn-around time, referee behavior, citation politics, impact factors, and perishing, I know they’re not told all they need to know about open access.’
