Dean Giustini has just blogged the first part of a series on Canadian involvement in the open access movement, Open Access Part I - Early Canadian Involvement to 1999, on the Open Medicine Blog.
This covers early Canadian leadership in the open access movement, from 1991 when Jean-Claude Guédon of the Université de Montréal founded Surfaces, to the work of Leslie Chan of Bioline International and Stevan Harnad.
Dean says he'll deal with the period 1999-2008 in part II.
