Please Commit To Providing Green OA Before Committing To Pay For Gold OA!
Connotea Imports 2012-07-31
Finding money to pay pre-emptively for Gold OA while subscriptions still prevail and OA itself does not is an extremely counterproductive strategy, if access to refereed research -- rather than publishing reform -- is the real raison d'être of the Open Access movement. Gold OA publishing is not the end, but merely one of the means (and by far not the fastest or surest means) of providing universal OA. Full speed ahead with (mandating) Green OA self-archiving; publishing will adapt naturally as the time comes.
