In this chapter, Alma Swan describes Open Access as emerging from a long history of scholarly communication, which has always been closely tied to changes in technology and economics. She describes how journal articles, books and monographs, and data have all been implicated in recent changes, but it is perhaps the recent developments in the dissemination of journal articles that have most exercised the minds of researchers, librarians, publishers and funders.
