The Open Access Bibliography: Liberating Scholarly
Literature with E-Prints and Open Access Journals presents
over 1,300 selected English-language books, conference
papers (including some digital video presentations),
debates, editorials, e-prints, journal and magazine
articles, news articles, technical reports, and other
printed and electronic sources that are useful in
understanding the open access movement's efforts to provide
free access to and unfettered use of scholarly literature.
Most sources have been published between 1999 and August 31,
2004; however, a limited number of key sources published
prior to 1999 are also included. Where possible, links are
provided to sources that are freely available on the
Internet (approximately 78 percent of the bibliography's
references have such links).

This bibliography has been published as a printed book
