The Economist in Support of Open Access

The Economist has an editorial endorsing mandated open access for publicly funded research. It concludes that “government bodies that fund academic research should require that the results be made available free to the public. So should charities that fund research. This would both broaden access to research and strengthen the hand of ‘open access’ journals, since many researchers would then be unable to publish results in closed ones.”
