Talking about openness, one important field is the student and academic journals.
This video speaks to the need the students have in general to write and communicate their views and experience on the subject that are studying and researching. The creation of magazines and newspapers in educational institutions are a great step forward in this matter. It is important that these publications must open to the other institutions, or any particular person, thus expanding the knowledge and the peer to peer collaboration and review.
I hope that these initiatives will follow its course and that in the near future we can have open access to these publications and that educational institutions encourage this type of initiative with subsidies. To date, only the large universities are investing in this type of phenomenon of education and even so, we normally have to pay for access to a certain type of information, especially in scientific libraries. I wonder, what the other institutions do about? It is true that access to knowledge is a right, but we must not wait for the others to fight for this right came true, but it should be each and every one of us who work together in this interesting and necessary field of action.
