From ancient times to the Millenium Development Goals Declaration, the issue of Access to Information has been essential to the world economic and social development and should be tackled as a right inherent to human beings. The Open Access movement contributes to giving the scientific community the hegemony they deserve by facilitating the use of relevant scientific literature and giving the authors and their work a new measurable visibility, eliminating barriers and reducing inequities in the access to technical-scientific information via the Internet.
