Abstract

Published scientific discoveries and ideas are the foundation for future progress in science and medicine. The more widely and freely accessible the literature is, the greater its value to scientists, researchers, doctors, students and the general public. Unfettered access to research literature will allow scientists, physicians, educators, students, and the general public to find and read the latest scientific and medical discoveries. Authors have discussed various open access initiatives in this article include OpenWetWare (OWW), The Public Library of Science (PLoS), Protocol Online, PubMed and PubMed Central (PMC), Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and 3 QUARKS Daily.
