"I anticipate that after open access, the next biggest surge that academic publishing will witness is 'independent publishing' (otherwise known as 'self-publishing'). If academics are financing the content and creating it, why shouldn’t they control pricing, determine and benefit by a division of profits that is skewed in their direction, and receive the resulting status which their work might generate? This is the future we are preparing for."
