'Open Access--The Movie' by Richard Poynder

In Nature, OA movement chronicler Richard Poynder reviews the movie Paywall: The Business of Scholarship, which he calls “an advocacy film.” He continues, “Its intention seems to be to persuade viewers that the paywalls that restrict access to journal content online are an unnecessary hangover from the print era, and now serve only to perpetuate the excessive profits that legacy publishers such as Elsevier, Wiley and Springer Nature make from the public purse.

“The film makes a convincing case that the paywall system creates problems — and that universal open access (OA) to scholarly articles would be better for society. But it fails to adequately explore the thorny challenges that arise with OA publishing.”
