Born Digital: building the ultimate open-access publisher – Frontiers Blog

acavaminombre's bookmarks 2017-02-03

Summary:

"The digital disruption for analog film started in 1975 with the invention of the digital camera by Steven Sasson and ended with the bankruptcy of Kodak in 2012 (40 years later). The digital disruption in publishing started in the late 1990s with the first online archiving of articles, but it is still far from complete (~30 years into the transition). However, as over 30% of peer-reviewed papers are now published in some form of open-access, the industry has technically crossed the tipping point for disruption. This is the point where more than just the innovators and early adopters begin using a product or service."
