Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

This selective bibliography presents over 1,100 journal articles, books, and other textual works. It covers open access overviews and theory; economic issues; copyright arrangements for self archiving and use; open access journals; e-prints; disciplinary archives; institutional repositories; metadata issues; open access mandates and policies; electronic theses and dissertations; the open archives initiative and OAI-PMH; library issues; conventional publisher perspectives; open access legislation, government reviews, funding agency mandates, and policies; open access in countries with emerging and developing economies; and open access books. Most sources were published from January 1999 through August 2010. It updates and expands the Open Access Bibliography: Liberating Scholarly Literature with E-Prints and Open Access Journals.

In the Journal of the Medical Library Association, Paul M. Blobaum said:

Bailey is a master of compiling lists of articles, web pages, papers, and books on a particular topic and distributing them to a wide audience. . . . This bibliography, like the others, is extensive and well organized with topical subheadings. A preface helps readers understand what "open access" means and what models are available. . . . This bibliography is recommended for everyone interested in open access publishing.

In the The Charleston Advisor, George Machovec said:

This work gives an outstanding overview of scholarship relating to the growing Open Access movement.
