PLoS On Open Access via Vimeo
The Public Library of Science has been making videos about their vision, mission and the role of open access in science and health, and making these quietly available through Vimeo for about four months now.
Here is an example of one of their videos - Ginny Barbour, Part 5, Open Access, Achievements and Looking Forward, in which she says, "Open access means not only is your research free permanently, with no barriers attached to it, but also that reuse is possible, that redistribution is possible, that translation is possible. Then all of a sudden what you find is that the flow of information is restricted only by people's imagination."
