Who determines the rules when it comes to open access? What dilemmas do researchers, editors and administrators face? Researchers want to publish in open access journals so they can reach as wide an audience as possible. But publication in a journal with a high impact factor and without open access often carries more prestige.

Should public funded research not automatically be accessible to all? Should the current publishing system be given a complete overhaul? What are the advantages and drawbacks of open access and what does it take to make the system work? What opportunities are there to move all publishers towards open access and how can researchers, editors and universities contribute to this?
