|Angiosarcoma is a cancer of the inner lining of blood vessels, and it can occur in any area of the body. The most common place for angiosarcomas to arise is head and neck, bone, or other vital organs such as liver and spleen. It grows and spreads very quickly. Angiosarcoma is rare enough that if a woman is suspected of having this form of cancer, diagnosis and confirmation are necessary from another healthcare institution with pathologists experienced at accurate identification.
Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel âroadsâ towards open access: Open Access articles and self-archiving. Open Access articles are immediately, freely available on their Web site, a model mostly funded by charges paid by the author (usually through a research grant). The alternative for a researcher is âself-archivingâ (i.e., to publish in a traditional journal, where only subscribers have immediate access, but to make the article available on their personal and/or institutional Web sites (including so-called repositories or archives)), which is a practice allowed by many scholarly journals.
Open Access raises practical and policy questions for scholars, publishers, funders, and policymakers alike, including what the return on investment is when paying an article processing fee to publish in an Open Access articles, or whether investments into institutional repositories should be made and whether self-archiving should be made mandatory, as contemplated by some funders.
