"Springer Acquires Open Access Publisher BioMed Central"

Acabei de ler esta informação no ResourceShelf e preciso claramente de apoio do cibertecário 0.2 para interpretar esta notícia no domínio open access.

“This acquisition reinforces the fact that we see open access publishing as a sustainable part of STM publishing, and not an ideological crusade,” Derk Haank, CEO of Springer Science Business Media, said in a statement, adding that the company’s experience with its version of OA, Springer Open Choice in 2004, has been positive. “This acquisition strengthens Springer’s position in the life sciences and biomedicine,” he said, “and will allow us to offer societies a greater range of publishing options."

Também a mim esta notícia deixou de queixo caído.
Espero que não seja nada de mal...
