The September 30, 2009 issue of The Dramatic Growth of Open Access is now available, at:

Abstract:

This issue of The Dramatic Growth of Open Access features a few key quotable numbers to illustrate

the growth and current extent of open  access: more than 4,000 fully open access, peer reviewed

journals in DOAJ, growing by 2 titles per day; close to 1,500 open access repositories listed in OpenDOAR,

adding a new repository every business day; over 30 million free publications through Scientific Commons,

growing by more than 20 thousands items per day; more than 20% of the world’s medical literature is

freely available 2 years after publication, and close to 10% is freely available immediately on publication;

1 more journal decides to submit all or most content to PMC every business day, and growth of open access

journals in PMC is one new journal every other business day. The number of open access mandate policies is

well over a hundred, and growing rapidly – but also likely understated. If you have a policy, please be sure to

register with ROARMAP. This quarter saw some minor setbacks. Most notable (but still small) is a decrease in

free content through Highwire Press.

Engineering VillageAlmost all search results in the popular Engineering Village (Compendex) display two yellow buttons:

the over-promising engineering village full text and our OpenURL resolver elinkicon Please choose our OpenURL resolver. The other button tries (via DOI) to go to a SPECIFIC full-text source. We may not subscribe to that source. Our resolver tries to find a full-text source we DO subscribe to. Hope this clears up the yellow-button confusion.
