The Open Access Project
Yashar Books is finally ready to launch an online free Torah resource center and discussion forum called "The Open Access Project."
At the Open Access Project page you can download free articles, essays, dissertations and (soon) entire books online. But that’s not all. You can also post your own reviews and critiques and join discussions. You can even submit your own papers for consideration. The idea is to make quality source material available in an Open Access virtual Bet Midrash and stimulate a give and take of ideas. It is an experimental project in collaborative scholarship.
The Open Access Project is still growing. You might say it’s in “Beta” format. Join now and help it grow and spread. Read, learn, respond. And tell your friends to join too!
