    Kaja Marczewska tracks in her contribution OA’s development
    from a radical and political project driven by experimental
    impetus, into a constrained model, limiting publishing in the
    service of the neoliberal university. Following Malik, she
    argues that OA in its dominant top-down implementation is
    determining the horizon of the publishable. Yet a horizon also
    suggests conditions of possibility for experimentation and
    innovation, which Marczewska locates in a potential OA ethos
    of poethics and praxis, in a fusion of attitude and form.
