To follow up on my post calling for a conversation among Russia specialists about open access publishing, I decided to talk to someone who knows the ins-and-outs of the debate: Dan Cohen. Dan is an Associate Professor in the Department of History and Art History at George Mason University and the Director of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. He is a big advocate of open access publishing. I thought he might provide some needed information and suggestions about how to think about the potential of open access.

Here’s some of Dan’s musings on the subject:
