This is just a random rant. I already downloaded the paper by other means.

I am just venting my frustration here at Oxford University Press. After mangling links to supplementary materials, now they paywall open acess articles. This is what I see when trying to read "Enrichment or depletion of a GO category within a class of genes: which test?":

You do not currently have access to this article.

And a little bellow:

Don't already have an Oxford Academic account? Register Enrichment or depletion of a GO category within a class of genes: which test? - 24 Hours access EUR €33.00 GBP £26.00 USD $42.00

I found the paper (just google, didn't even need to resort to the hub), and saw this:

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Funding to pay the Open Access publication charges for this article was provided by the CNRS and the city of Paris.

Now that is funding well-spent!

I have already contacted OUP using their "contact us" site (which is missing an "Our goof-ups" section), my experience is in 3-4 months they will reply, probably sending me a pdf of the paper.

Ok, end of rant! I feel a bit better now.

Out of curiosity did you try creating an "academic" account with OUP to see if you can access the article then.

This journal is ISCB's and this is what the submission policy says:

ISCB Society Pages submitted to OUP Bioinformatics are by default published under a standard license that allows the public to view the article for free. Alternatively, authors have the option to choose an Open Access license, either CC-BY or CC-BY-NC, for a fee of £850 / $1500 / €1275.

Those two licenses seem to be not completely open based on Wiki entry for CC?

No, i didn't, I will try. But it is a pain if one has to subscribe to read an "open acess" paper. I already have too many accounts out there, managing them all is a pain and I do not need more.

Subscribe alone does not give you access.

Thanks for the paper. It is probably just a technical problem, but it is a pain to find the proper channel to report the issue, and it takes weeks or months to get a reply or see the issue fixed.
