I saw this Nature article on Twitter. I’m not in academia and have no experience with this, so I would be interested to hear the thoughts of this group.
A particularly pressing issue is open access (OA) publication fees, in which the benefit of free readership is being offset by new barriers to authorship.
The article seems to relate to the idea that the “open” label does not automatically mean that all problems have been disposed of. On the other hand, how does one create sustainable journals to share knowledge that do not have paywalls for either reading or publishing?
