The page is a very promising start, but at the moment its coverage of the
the two roads to Open Access is very uneven. What is well-covered is:
Open Access Journal- Publishing (Gold).

But there are many important omissions from the coverage of the other
road to Open Access: Open Access Self-archiving (Green).

I would like to suggest the following additions:
