Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada The March 31 issue of Dramatic Growth of Open Access features a comparison of open access growth including CC-BY article growth figures supplied by OASPA. In brief: for every CC-BY article addition tracked by OASPA, repositories around the world add 359 documents as found by a BASE search, DOAJ adds 10 articles that are not CC-BY licensed (90% of DOAJ article growth), arXiv and SSRN each add 3 documents, and the Internet Archive adds lots of texts, movies, sound recordings and concerts.  Recent research suggests that CC-BY is the preference of a small minority of scholars.
