Gates Foundation and Open Access

This news crossed my desk recently, about the Gates Foundation pushing forward open access (OA) in 2015:

Interesting local OA news, although not UW of course. The Gates Foundation is implementing a OA mandate as of January 1, 2015:

It’s a very progressive and strong policy. No opt-out, no embargo, no restricted access, etc. I like the open data element, which is also a step beyond typical OA policies, and relevant to reproducibility.

    Pretty great. Too bad health research doesn’t use!
