DECLARING INDEPENDENCE was published in 2001 by SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition) and TRLN (the Triangle Research Libraries Network), partners in bringing this initiative to the research community.

The publication was designed as a tool for scholars and journal editors to address the crisis in scientific scholarly communication and begin to explore alternatives to commercial journals.

While the full-length 2001 DECLARING INDEPENDENCE is no longer in circulation, a selection is available here, in PDF format. If you're interested in learning more about alternatives to commercial journals, please see the Create Change and Open Access brochures.
