Bernard Rentier's insight:
Beall won't say why he "unpublished" his famous list but one can find out what his real motive was: fight again open access. See it here:http://triplec.at/index.php/tripleC/article/view/525/514

Speech by Professor Craig Calhoun: Knowledge as a Public Good – the role of universities

Speech by Professor Craig Calhoun: Knowledge as a Public Good – the role of universities | Open-Up Public Science! | Scoop.it
Will universities continue to pursue knowledge for the public good – or will they pursue knowledge only for those who can pay?Will knowledge itself continue to be organised as a public good – one that can be shared widely without being diminished – or will property rights restrict sharing?Will public engagement continue to be basic to how knowledge advances – through publication, debate, error correction and the stimulation of new work – or will intellectual debate be stifled?What sort of future we will have depends on how we respond to changes in how universities are funded, trends in information technology and media, globalisation, competition, and other changes. We need to renew ourselves even while we maintain the excellence to which we have long been committed.

Why science – and open science – matters now more than ever

Donald Trump does not believe in global warming and a few other scientific evidences. In the wake of his election, more than ever, science must be open to be reproducible and, in turn, to have any chance of being valued in politics. And policy based on evidence is our ticket – our one and only ticket – to survival.

Trump scares the Internet Archive into moving its backup data to Canada

Trump scares the Internet Archive into moving its backup data to Canada | Open-Up Public Science! | Scoop.it
Digital library the Internet Archive believes the only way to protect its data from the Donald Trump administration is to store a backup in Canada.
Bernard Rentier's insight:
In the times of print, copies of publications abounded and they could be found in many places around the world. Today, in the times of electronic archiving, it is safe to multiply deposits in many different repositories, to avoid erratic decisions made by democratically (or not) elected lunatics.
