Open access to scientific publications must become a reality



At the moment we are putting a lot of public money at national, European and global level into science. But we don’t have free access to the published results of the research we fund because this is locked behind paywalls. We have to spend an enormous amount of money each year on subscriptions to journals where scientific articles are published and on making these results immediately available in open access. Imagine if all the billions we are now putting into these expensive subscription journals could be put into research. That’s also why in the 3 O’s policy of Commissioner Moedas (the EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation), open access is mentioned explicitly as a top priority within the open science agenda.'Open access to research results will help to have more and faster innovations, to have quicker solutions to the problems we are facing and to allow further research to be carried out.'There is with regard to open access also another dimension, to which we don't pay a lot of attention. If we want to see that also in the developing countries a science base is being built, we should give these countries easy and low-cost access to scientific publications because these countries just cannot afford to pay for these expensive subscription journals.'

    Hi, I have a D70 with the very common perishing glue syndrome. Basically the epoxy used to glue in the key weights perishes under certain circumstances over time. The result is dripping glue from under the keys and weights falling out, rendering the keys useless. I've heard of repairing this by pulling the synth apart, removing the weights, and re-gluing them with fresh epoxy. Has anyone done this? I've tried Googling to no avail. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- https://www.soundonsound.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=4609 Motion graphics video studio Thanks!

    Hi, Ok, i have two problems: 1. When i publish a file into the .pdf format, everything seems to be ok, except the text wich is not apearing in the .pdf file. When i try to select a text at the .pdf file, it looks like the text is there, it`s just like it has a transparent color. What seems to be the problem? 2. Because of this first problem, i was forced to use some PDF Converter instead of standard publishing option. I used a Amyuni Converter, and everything seems to be ok with it, but now i have a problem with the Image fills. They are somewhat blurry, and on some places completly black, in a contrary to the regular Archicad Publish option, wich has no problems with the image fill, but does with the text. Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References: https://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=30743 Auto Loan Video Thank you.

    Hi, I updated to AC 18 and now the font that I use (Neutraface) is not visible on any of my published drawings. I have used AC and this same font since 2004 without any issues. I can "save to pdf" through the print dialog box and the text is visible. If I use publisher, all text in Neutraface disappears from the pdfs. I changed some of the text to Times New Roman and that text is visible on published pdfs. This is my first post because I am always able to search and find the answers I am looking for, until now. Can someone help? Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
