Hi everyone,

Just a short message to highlight a piece we wrote with Pierre-Carl 
Langlais (@Dorialexander). It was published in a prominent online 
publication yesterday, in French and was aimed to release the recently 
concluded agreement between the French Ministry of Research and Elsevier.Â

With precious help from Jenny and Katelyn, the piece is now available in 
English on the main OKF blog:Â 

Such secret contracts are what hinders any meaningful incentive to an 
Open Access policy. This is the first installment in a series of 
materials we will be running in the coming weeks, aiming to achieve 
greater transparency (and later on, to conquer the world ;) ).

Comments, insights, ideas, tweets, etc. greatly appreciated,

"Change l'ordre du monde plutôt que tes désirs."
