Gates Makes Ground

In a win for open-access proponents, a year-long agreement between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science will allow Gates-funded scholars to publish research in Science and four other AAAS journals.
Gates-funded researchers must make papers and data open to the public once they are published. That policy has in the past clashed with publishers’ insistence on an embargo period before they free papers from their pay walls. Now AAAS is waiving its embargo for Gates.
The foundation will pay the association a lump sum of $100,000 and expects to publish 10 to 15 studies.
