The global research community is moving toward the optimal and inevitable outcome in the online age: All research articles as well as the data on which they are based will be openly accessible for free for all on the web, deposited in researchers' own OAI-compliant Institutional Repositories, and mandated by their institutions and funders. Research users, funders, evaluators, and analysts, as well as teachers, general public will have an unprecedented capacity not only to read, assess and use research findings, but to comment upon them, entering into the global knowledge growth process. Prepublication preprints, published postprints, data, analytic tools and commentary will all be fully and navigably interlinked. Scientometrics will generate powerful new ways to navigate, analyze, rank, and evaluate this Open Access corpus, its past history, and its future trajectory. A vast potential for providing services that mine and manage this rich global research database will be open both to the academic community as well as to enterprising industries.
