December 2009 Dramatic Growth of Open Access

Early year end edition of the Dramatic Growth of Open Access, illustrating strong growth in open access mandates, journals, archives and their contents. Presents some tips for figuring out who is naughty and who is nice at helping authors comply with funders' reasonable public access requirements. Looks forward to another great year for OA; but no need to wait for New Year's, resolve to join COPE today!
