Patients vs. paywalls: Is the U.S. ready for open-access publishing? - STAT

AThomas's bookmarks 2018-09-14

Summary:

"Scientific publishing giant Elsevier recently came under fire after its director of scholarly communications, William Gunn, wrote a controversial tweet in response to a post that “people shouldn’t have to jump through hoops” to access important medical research.

While I disagree entirely with the harsh tone of Gunn’s tweet, the underlying rationale behind his comment should not be overlooked: to manage submissions, peer review, editing, and publication, quality scientific publishing requires infrastructure that costs money."
