Academic revolution demands for open access to knowledge


The Guardian ........."Academic publishers operate with profit margins of 35% or more, while getting their raw materials and the work of thousands of taxpayer- and charity-funded scientists free.

Academics write the papers, academics referee the papers, academics select the papers that are going to be published – it's almost as though the publisher does nothing that we need except perhaps their organisational role and lending the name of the journal that confers a certain reputation."
