  26. “I would say that I've operated within an open
    access publishing world without much difficulty
    over the past years, though with the caveat
    that the open end of the spectrum is just that:
    one end. At the other end are publishers still
    tugging at our/my sleeves and insisting upon
    varying degrees of restrictions. But the trend
    line is moving strongly in the open direction”
