[2] Does the growth of open access threaten the quality of research papers? [3] How will the science literature evolve over the foreseeable future, and how will the roles and funds of researchers, publishers, research councils and universities need to evolve with it? [4] How will the achievements of researchers be documented, accredited and judged in the future?”
