Abstract: When we were considering this issue, we were very aware that we didn't want to revisit previous arguments about open access (OA), but rather take as our starting point the fact that 2013 seemed to have been a watershed for open access. Driven by a number of policy announcements from funding bodies and governments worldwide, the question is no longer whether open access will or should happen, but rather how will it be implemented in a sustainable way.
