Even Sci-Hub Has Management Headaches - The Scholarly Kitchen

lterrat's bookmarks 2017-06-27

Summary:

"So Sci-Hub’s strategy seems to bank on at least these three points:

  • Researchers are gullible
  • Librarians will not readily engage with publishers’ concerns
  • Publishers will continue to wear white hats

I don’t see any of these points changing in the near future. For publishers this means that they are going to have to solve this problem by themselves. The place to begin is to put themselves in Sci-Hub’s shoes and reflect on where they would take the service next if it were their own responsibility."
