Critical Commentary

AO: This blog post of an interview conducted with Leslie Chan who he worries that the Open Access movement may have in fact had the opposite of its original intended effect – instead of democratizing and enabling knowledge to be used by wider publics for local development, in his eyes, the movement appears to have been co-opted by the same publishers that have held a monopoly over global scholarly outputs, further entrenching their power and control over academic knowledge production.
