as most people on this listerserver and in agencies promote the news that
we are all moving towards Open Access, and that things get better that way
and more transparent, or even more
I would like to share with you below a recent article by the esteemed
American Association of
University Professors (AAUP), titled

The Big Secret in the Academy Is That Most Research Is Secret: The
dangerous rift between open and classified research, Spring 2020
By Kate Brown

It deals with Chernobyl as a case study but has many wider implications and
statements within on data access issues and the sciences, globally.

It mirrors what I know and see, and what I have expressed last years.

It also reminds of such type of works (see facts and details within,
specifically data and digital society issues) like:



The best way to proceed here, in a good way, is to fully acknowledge the
status quo,
and then improve on it dramatically for betterment.
I lack those acknowledgements though and actions even, or a valid vision,
beyond just arbitrary piecemeal with many loop holes and ineffciencies.

That's my view.

Thanks, please keep me posted on this topic.
Very best regards
   Falk Huettmann  PhD, Professor
     University of Alaska Fairbanks
