The debate over open access is missing the point

johnhiltoneditor's bookmarks 2019-01-06

Summary:

Key points

  • It is more important to a funder to know that the research advances knowledge and has an impact on the field than that it is published in a prestigious journal (or not).
  • Improving journal quality assurance is more important than improving the business model.
  • Focusing on open access misses the point that journals need to improve their quality standards.
