Total Open Access: the new gospel of scientific communication

“Scientific communication has evidently hit a brick wall. A growing number of scientists are publishing an increasing number of results and findings from research all over the world. Never before has the output from scientific publications been so great.As some publishers of journals exploit their market position and pitch subscription prices as if they hold the monopoly, however, many libraries are no longer able to afford these publications. In the so-called journal crisis, which began around 15 years ago, the mounting calls among librarians for free access to scientific information mirrored the soaring subscription fees.” (via Research Information)
