MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this remarkably thoughtful book, Willinsky explores how the wider dissemination to the general public of research results in the social sciences might lead to marked quality-of-life improvements."
-Ellen Gilbert, Rutgers Univ., 08/11/00
"Willinsky's book is an important counterpoint in the discussion of scholarly communication, which is typically treated as an economic rather than a sociopolitical or cultural issue. He argues that the crisis in scholarly communication is not just about cost but, rather, also is about the public's inability to gain access to research available in fewer libraries as a consequence of cost."
-William C. Welburn, University of Iowa, College & Research Libraries, May 2001
..."very ambitious. It is nothing less than a proposal to reorganize social science research in a new way, which would facilitate public access to it through the use of internet technology.."
-Gil Eyal, Social Forces, June 2001
