Une infrastructure pour connaître les coûts des publications (An infrastructure to know the costs of publications)

From Google's translate:


"In an article, Danny Lämmerhirt, research coordinator at Open Knowledge International, is pushing for greater financial transparency to rethink the organization of scientific publishing. For the author, the lack of publicly available financial information is problematic for at least three reasons:

1.   it hampers the evaluation of existing publishing policies and funding models;

2. financial opacity also prevents a detailed view of the amount of money paid in one country, by funding agency, university, library and researcher;

3. lack of knowledge about payments weakens the bargaining power of universities and libraries.


To overcome this barrier, Open Knowledge International advocates for public databases that collect expenditures related to scientific publications. Such infrastructures would allow the monitoring, documentation, publication and discussion of the various costs associated with scholarly publishing."
