Isaac Newton once said, "if I have been able to see farther, it was only because I stood on the shoulders of giants."
Scientific progress is achieved by building on the work of others and, to do so, scientists need to be able to access that work. The aim of the open access movement is to ensure that all scientists (and, indeed, everyone else) can have ready access to the current body of the research literature, as this will contribute to the rate of scientific progress. This ideal of university access holds out obvious benefits for wealth creation and the quality of life. Achieving open access is, in principle, straightforward. The papers that scientists publish need to be placed on unrestricted sites on the web. In practice, things are not so simple, and the aim of this workshop is to offer examples of best practices in technical, legal, organizational and economic terms, from around the world, in pursuing open access through new models of publishing and self-archiving with institutional repositories.

Also, OAI-PMH is a journal issue as well, as we want to use common indexing systems across journals and repositories.
