Today I am very pleased to have the chance to moderate a press panel about Open Access at 4 p.m. Nobel Laureate Sir Harald Kroto will tell us about his efforts to improve science education with different online projects. Dr. Jason Wild, publisher of Nature Physics, will tell us, what Nature Publishing Group does for Open Access. And Bora Zivkovic, community manager at PLoS may give us some insights in the OA movement.

Therefore I post a short linklist, which might help to get some more background informations.
