For those who missed it, Mike Taylor, a member of our Advocacy Forum, has a piece in The Guardian that's been making waves. In it, Mike provocatively writes:

Our job is to make knowledge. If we make it, then brick it up behind a wall, we're wasting our time and our funders' money – which ultimately means we're squandering the world's wealth.

Publishing behind paywalls is immoral. More than that, it's oxymoronic: if it's behind a paywall, it hasn't been published. We have to stop doing it, now and for always.
