* Announcement (cross-posted) *

I just mailed the October issue of the SPARC Open Access Newsletter.  This 
issue summarizes the state of OA legislation in the just-ended session of 
Congress and takes a close look at the indirect ways in which access might 
affect quality.  The Top Stories section takes a brief look at the 
university administrators supporting and opposing FRPAA, the continued 
expansion of the hybrid journal model, an NIH-publisher agreement that 
hurts researchers, a new policy at the NEH (not NIH) to favor OA projects, 
and a statement by a Vice President of the Association of American 
Publishers that it's in the national interest to limit access to 
publicly-funded research to those who can afford to pay.
