Kill the Bill

farleyas's bookmarks 2018-09-21

Summary:

Science is experiencing a crisis which revolves around scholarly publishing. The open access model of “pay to publish”, in which authors pay a charge to cover production and subscription costs, is increasingly shaking the traditional subscription model in which universities pay for access.

While this shift in payment—from libraries to authors—is causing a positive disruption in scholarly publishing, and enabling more open and broader access to research, challenges remain. Can we move away from today’s profit-driven hyper-competitive, prestige-based publishing model and towards an open, shared and collaborative scientific community?
