History Group Slams Open Access

From the article: “In a stunning demonstration of Poe’s law, the American Historical Association has released a policy statement favoring the restriction digital theses ("with access being provided only on that campus”) for fears that open access versions could be read. The basis for this argument is FUD about a tenure system that apparently cannot be changed. See Inside Higher Ed and The Chronicle for more coverage.“
