Welcome to the Google Docs Community Channel. We've recently revamped this channel to include new up-to-date videos and better organization. We hope you like the changes! The Google Docs Community Channel is a place where you can learn more about using Google Docs and how others are using it. It's chock full of tutorials, testimonials, and other fun stories from our users. It's also a great place to connect with other users by subscribing channels of users whose videos you like, and by having fun discussions in the comments sections. Some of the content on this channel has been produced by Google, but the most exciting stuff is produced by YOU, our users. If you've got a story to tell or a demo to show, visit our submission page here to have your video featured on this channel: goo.gl/qSfH. Most importantly, if you've never used Google Docs before but are intrigued by what you see, why don't you give it a try? Visit our Try It Now page (goo.gl/CwZaK) where you can test out Google Docs for yourself, without having to set up an account. Thanks for visiting. We look forward to joining you in the discussion! ·
This guide has been produced to give researchers, publishers, librarians and information professionals a basic understanding of the Open Access movement and where we currently stand.
We are seeing a continued growth of interest across the world in the moves made in recent years to stimulate an ‘open access’ environment, where all research outputs will be available to everyone free of charge at the point of use.
Researchers now have access to greater volumes of research literature than ever before, but we are still far from a position where every researcher who needs it has ready access to all the literature that may be relevant to their research. The current economic difﬁculties also bring with them the risk that library budgets will be cut, and that some of the advances in access over recent years will be reversed. ·
