October 5, 2013 marks the 1 year anniversary of the launching of Open Access Now. Open Access Now is a team-managed, one stop source for news, policy and current writing about open access and scholarly communication. The purpose of this publication is to centralize and aggregate the variety of information that is published, online or in print, related to the principle that scholarly research should be freely accessible online. Members of the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions participate in the process of sorting, nominating and publishing the most relevant news, pulling from a collection of sources. Open Access Now is one of the many resources and related sites users will find on Open Access @ Purdue.
