An invaluable friend to Open Access, University of Southampton's
Professor Wendy Hall, as Head of the School of Electronics and
Computer Science from 2002 to 2007, not only presided over the
adoption and implementation of the world's first Green OA
Self-Archiving Mandate, but she quietly went on to help get Green
(ID/OA) Mandates adopted at the European level, as a founding member
of the Scientific Council of the European Research Council as well as
President of the British Computer Society (BCS) and member of the
Prime Minister's Council for Science and Technology. It is no small
thanks to Wendy's support that the UK in particular and Europe in
general are leading the world in its inexorable progress toward the
optimal and inevitable outcome for scientific and scholarly research,
at long last. And this is but one part of what Wendy has done for
computer science, and science in general. Let us all celebrate her
latest honour.
