Contribute to open access e-archive

Open access publishing has been operating successfully within the sciences for over 15 years now. Yet whereas other onlines movements and practices such as creative commons, free software, open source and peer-to-peer, have been regarded as providing models for new regimes of culture, new kinds of networked institutions, even for the future organisation of society, the open access movement has had comparatively little impact on the humanities to date.
By making the research litterature freely available to researchers, teachers, students, investigative journalists, policy makers, union organisers, NGOs, political activists, protest groups and the general public alike, on a worldwide basis, open access is seen as having the potential to break down some of the barriers between the university and the rest of society.(...)
In a attempt to go at least some way toward addressing this situation, contributions are sought to the CSeARCH, the Cultural Studies e-Archive, at www.culturemachine.net/csearch. It is not-for-profit and free to download from and upload to.
