OER can make for strange bedfellows
Even I am a little surprised by this one:
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Mar. 7, 2008 – In a move to encourage open education, MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) and Elsevier have agreed to make available figures and text selections from any of Elsevier’s more than 2,000 journal titles for use on OCW.
Of course it’s not the full text of the articles, but it makes available a lot of content that was heretofore unpublishable for us and it shows Elsevier is giving serious thought to access issues.
