Senior Associate Dean Richard A. Danner of the Duke University School of Law, has posted a new paper entitled The Durham Statement on Open Access One Year Later: Preservation and Access to Legal Scholarship (2010). Here is the abstract:
The Durham Statement on Open Access to Legal Scholarship calls for US law schools to stop publishing their journals in print format and to rely instead on electronic publication with a commitment to keep the electronic versions available in “stable, open, digital formats.” The Statement asks for two things: 1) open access publication of law school-published journals; and 2) an end to print publication of law journals. This paper was written as background for a July 2010 American Association of Law Libraries conference program on the preservation implications of the call to end print publication.
