The fact that a scientific program is in Debian main is already a
statement that its source code is open for acedemic peer review.
Or are you talking about Open Access? I am not sure how to push this as
a whole in the context of Debian Science - obviously a lot of the
project members strongly believe in Open Acess. The only tangible
measure I could think of is to remove links/references to non-Open
Access journals from our metadata - a measure I personally do not think
is warranted at this point.
