Why Does the Chicago Manual of *Style* Hate Open Access?

The Occasional Pamphlet (aka Stuart Shieber), finds something odd, unpleasant, and rather short-sighted in the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style on Open Access: a suggestion that publishers work to undermine Open Access.

Stuff like this is why I started the Copyright Experiences project, a site where academic authors can report on the extent to which they’ve been able to persuade publishers to allow wide distribution of their work, e.g. via Open Access, Creative Commons, or the like.

If you are a legal academic author who has published something recently where you were able to keep your copyright and/or license it under an Open Access or Creative Commons model, please consider going to the Copyright Experiences website and sharing this information for the common good.
