Pre-Green Fool's-Gold and Post-Green Fair-Gold OA - Open Access Archivangelism

peter.suber's bookmarks 2013-10-11


Unlike with today's Fool's Gold junk journals that were caught by Bohannon's sting, not only will no-fault post-Green, Fair-Gold peer-review remove any incentive to accept lower quality papers (and thereby reduce the reputation of the journal) -- because the journal is paid for the peer review service in any case -- but it will help make Fair-Gold OA costs even lower, per round of peer review, because it will not wrap the costs of the rejected or multiply revised and re-refereed papers into the cost of each accepted paper, as they do now. So post-Green Fair Gold will not only reduce costs but it will raise peer-review standards.
