ERCIM European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics
will publish in January a special issue of ERCIM News that goes
far beyond Informatics and Mathematics to Open Access (OA) to all

The President of ERCIM, Professor Keith Jeffery
Director of IT for CCLRC, is also on the Research Councils UK
committee that is drafting RCUK's OA policy:

The ERCIM special issue contains Professor Jeffery's overview of OA,
plus clear overviews of the Green and Gold Route to OA (OA self-archiving
and OA publishing) and the benefits OA brings to European and worldwide
research, along with the ERCIM Statement on OA. An overview of CC licenses
and of the role of the Worldwide Web Consortium in OA is followed by the
closing article on Netherlands' highly successful "Cream of Science"
project for showcasing its research output with the help of the OAI
