In the above short film Dr. Arianna Betti explains how she uses Open Access publications in her daily work and how Open Access can speed up research and increase collaboration between scholars.
Dr. Betti: 'Right now, we still must choose between Open Access and prestige. Let's keep our copyright. Let's put our publications online available in repositories. Let's choose the journals that have the best Open Access policies. And let's create new Open Access journals. At some point in the future there will be no distinction what so ever between prestige and Open Access. Because the future is Open Access.'
