Whither the scientific journals, thither. . .

January 31, 2012

I think, the humanities journals. An article from Forbes about the revolt against Elsevier. We all know it’s unsustainable; it never was sustainable–it was just that there was no alternative. Hello, digital world!

I have a feeling that this [revolt] will indeed lead to some fairly major changes in the way that Elsevier is able to run its journal publishing division. At least, I rather hope so, for the entire cost base and financial structure is outmoded in this internet age.
