A new report released by the National Center for Literacy Education (NCLE) reveals that school librarians are highly involved leaders playing a critical role in their schools through consistent and sustained collaboration with other educators. Additionally, school librarians not only participate in but deliver professional development to peers, educators and staff in their schools.

The Real Reason Journal Articles Should Be Free

The Real Reason Journal Articles Should Be Free | 21st Century School Librarian | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 2, 2013 7:17 PM

Around the time of the tragic suicide of Aaron Swartz, who lobbied tirelessly for free access to academic articles (in his sometimes grey-hat manner, which ultimately got him in trouble), I admitted to some friends that I didn't understand how this became a problem. Why aren't all journal articles free, all the time?


I don't mean that I didn't know why the journal publishers charged exorbitant fees for their subscriptions. If academic researchers have to have access to journal articles in order to do their jobs, then you can expect the journals to gouge academic libraries on the prices. What I didn't understand was: Why do academics even publish in journals that demand exclusive publishing rights for their work, and then charge readers huge fees to read it?

McSotos's curator insight, March 3, 2013 12:46 AM

Όπως επισημαίνει η κ. Pratas είναι οξύμωρο να ένα ακαδημαικός ερευνητής να παραχωρεί τα πενευματικά δικαιώματα και παραλλήλα να πρέπει να πληρώνει μυθικά ποσά για κάποια άρθρα.

Προφανώς ο  Aaron Swartz συνεχίζει να επηρρεάζει τον τρόπο που σκεφτόμαστε.
