Abstract

This article is part of a review symposium on the book 'The Access Principle: The Case for Open Access to Research and Scholarship' by John Willinsky. Published in 2006 by the MIT Press, Willinsky's book provides a theorized but thoroughly readable overview of debates on the nature of public knowledge and access to it. The complete article includes reviews by Fides Datu Lawton (UTS, Sydney), Cushla Kapitzke (QUT, Brisbane) and Garett Gietzen (UIUC, Urbana-Champaign) and a response from John Willinsky.
