Marketplace: Publicly funded research for a price:

Publicly funded research doesn’t seem so public when the public has to pay to read the results in a journal. A proposed law would help publishing companies preserve their business models, but it would limit public access to the research.

Publishers continue to resist the open-access movement, it seems. This Marketplace (as heard on public radio) report does a decent job of laying out some of the issues. The comments are worth reading as well.
