    Antonella Esposito ( reflexiona sobre el papel de las prácticas y las limitantes institucionales, en este caso académicas, sobre la selección, que uno considera casi natural, de lo abierto, en red y digital, dominante como prácrica y como discurso. Para no pensar en el acceso abierto como algo que flota en el éter.
    How do university researchers consider attributes such as 'digital' and 'open' as regards to their research practices? This article reports a small-scale interview project carried out at the University of Milan, aiming to probe whether and to what extent actual digital research practices are affecting cultures of sharing in different subject areas and are prompting emergent approaches such as open publishing, open data, open education and open boundary between academia and society. Most of the 14 interviewed researchers seem not to see any clear benefit to move to further technological means or new open practices and call for institutional support and rules. However, a few profiles of 'digital, networked and open' researchers stand out and show both a self-legitimating approach to new modes of knowledge production and distribution and a particular sensitiveness towards values and perspectives driven by 'openness' in digital networks.
