"How Bidding for Publishing Services Could Lower Academic Journal Costs"
Her er et utdrag:
Only the existing model of Scholastica, Ubiquity, etc. is sustainable, as it allows for switching publication services, without interruption of service or access to content. Publishing in the future will be a service, not a content-hoarding-and-extortion business.
If you had to pick one thing you could change to improve the future of research publishing what would it be?
BB: All content-hoarding publishers become service providers.
Også Richard Poynder har skrevet om dette 27 oktober i innedningen av et intervju med Judy Ruttenberg i Association of Research Libraries i USA:
When the open access movement began it was focused on solving two problems – the affordability problem (i.e. journal subscriptions are way too high, so research institutions cannot afford to buy access to all the research their faculty need), and the accessibility problem that this gives rise to. Today, however, there is a growing sense that what really needs addressing is an ownership problem.
