Highly related to this, there's a UK government e-petition entitled "Knowledge generated by government funding should be freely available":

Have you yet tried to put it in the Depot'? That way you can test the conclusion you have come to about shar[ing] your work with otrhes via the [Depot] repository . It's likely that when you attempt to do so you will be given opportunity to be re-directed to your local IR, but note that you can use the Depot see the link at the bottom. Try depositing some of your own material, you certainly can deposit; then using the RoMEO database which as Bill points out does indicate permissions for about 80% of journals listed there, you should be able to make these Open Access and so share your work with otrhes via the repository . For those journals/publishers that dont permit such sharing, you can still expose the metadata, and who knows, someone might request a copy from you.Here's hoping to help increase content, as you say you would wish.As to who are the drivers, well it would seem that you say you are.
