Polimetrica Publishing Open Access Manifesto

Polimetria Publishing has just published their Open Access Manifesto

Excerpt
Polimetrica Publisher works from a simple premise: that for a better future of the people it's possible to disseminate the knowledge by publishing innovative books freely accessible to anyone in the world who might be interested.

Comment
In brief, the approach is simultaneous publication of a free online version of a book and a paid print version of a book.

What an enlightened idea!

A number of the publishers who oppose open access have spoken on the topic. By all means, let's hear more from the open access publishers, and those who support open access to the extent that they can.

Congratulations to Polimetrica Publishing.
