Wageningen Young Academy and Wageningen UR Library organized a debate on 'Open Access: why, how and for whom?' in June 2016. We made a short report of this meeting.

Interestingly, there was a general agreement this afternoon among the audience on many concerns that were raised, whether in favor of or against OA. This confirms that OA publishing is a complex issue with no easy solutions and that there is a need for information and awareness raising, as well as continued discussion.
