This is a print version of two interviews I posted on my blog in 2016 as part of a series entitled The Open Access Interviews.
The first interview is with Cambridge mathematician Sir Timothy Gowers. In 2012 Gowers called for a boycott of the scholarly publisher Elsevier, and in 2106 he started an overlay journal called Discrete Analysis to demonstrate that a high-quality mathematics journal could be inexpensively produced outside of the traditional academic publishing industry.
The second interview is with Clifford Lynch, the director of the Washington-based Coalition for Networked Information (CNI). This interview covers the past, present and possible futures of the Institutional Repository (IR).
Both interviews are preceded with a lengthy introduction.
I have also included in this booklet my response to some of the comments the interview with Clifford Lynch sparked.
