The preliminary pages of the full text report names the individuals
responsible for the writing of the report. The reputation of the final
editors (Dominiqu Babini and Richard Poynder) satisfies me that the
report will represent sound and progressive information.
Thanks for sharing the news, which passed me by.

This daft report has appeared from a relatively new organization
called The Open Science Initiative Working group of the national
Science Communication Institute. It doesn't seem possible tell who
the drafting/editing people were, pulling together from what was
obviously a much larger conversation. Apparently a large group of
thought leaders was invited to join an email dialog. 24 of them chose
to sign the document and 90 didn't, for whatever reason. Would be
interesting to hear more about this report from those who know more.
Meanwhile, the draft (final report to be released in March) highlights
the diversity in in perceptions about open access. It recommends 10
years of high level (productive) conference-based conversations and
recommends exploring "the world's first all-scholarship repository,"
stating that work is already in progress about this.
Any more information available about this ASR?
