The following comments on the page:

http://www.nature.com/news/nature-makes-all-articles-free-to-view-1.16460

clarify the practice of this new "shared read-only model" of NPG:

**Lucas Veillon • 2014-12-03 02:55 AM:

When will the free access begin? I'm attempting to read a Nature
Reviews Endocrinology article in the December 2014 issue and not
having any luck.

** Gavin Simpson • 2014-12-03 03:21 AM

That's not how this works; someone with access currently --- either
via an institutional or personal subscription --- needs to share with
you a link to the read-only, Readcube version of the article.

(Gavin Simpson is a Nature-guy)

Is there a risk that Nature tries to replace author selfarchiving
(green open access) by this new shared-read model?  We will see,
whether there will come a change in the wording of "NPG author licence
policy" (the copyright transfer "agreement").

Institutions with print-only subscription may not benefit from the
"shared-read-only model" I presume.

"shared-read-only" in contrast to "open access"

Citation from the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in
the Sciences and Humanities:
http://openaccess.mpg.de/Berlin-Declaration

"Definition of an Open Access Contribution

Establishing open access as a worthwhile procedure ideally requires
the active commitment of each and every individual producer of
scientific knowledge and holder of cultural heritage. Open access
contributions include original scientific research results, raw data
and metadata, source materials, digital representations of pictorial
and graphical materials and scholarly multimedia material.

1.        Open access contributions must satisfy two conditions:The
author(s) and right holder(s) of such contributions grant(s) to all
users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, right of access to, and a
license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work
publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital
medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of
authorship (community standards, will continue to provide the
mechanism for enforcement of proper attribution and responsible use of
the published work, as they do now), as well as the right to make
small numbers of printed copies for their personal use.

2.        A complete version of the work and all supplemental
materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in an
appropriate standard electronic format is deposited (and thus
published) in at least one online repository using suitable technical
standards (such as the Open Archive definitions) that is supported and
maintained by an academic institution, scholarly society, government
agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable
open access, unrestricted distribution, inter operability, and
long-term archiving."
