Open Access, as its name indicates, is about access (and re­use) of validated scientific results (and, more recently, about data as well); but it is also about regaining a clear perspective on the needs scientists have in terms of scientific communication and its control. By following some of the salient events in the recent history of scientific communication and of the Open Access movement, this talk will try to demonstrate the strategic importance of Open Access in the very dynamics of science and the quality of the knowledge produced.
