AAAS's Response: Too Little, Too Late.
Voluntarily freeing their contents online after a 12-month delay is certainly a welcome step from AAAS, but it is too little, too late. It is quite understandable that neither Science nor any other publisher should find any reason for pre-emptively freeing its contents online at this time. All they need to do for now is to let their authors take matters into their own hands, by self-archiving their refereed papers. The rest will take care of itself.
