Bernard Rentier's curator insight, December 16, 2012 10:35 AM

A new study from Stanford molecular and cellular physiologist Axel Brunger and colleagues clears up a controversy in the neuroscience community by pinpointing a critical feature of the mechanism by which our nerve cells manage to talk to one another in something approaching real time. While the study is noteworthy in itself, the fact that its findings appear in the first issue of eLife, a newly launched open-access journal, rather than Science or Nature is also significant.

Harvard Faculty Advisory Council Memorandum on Journal Pricing

We write to communicate an untenable situation facing the Harvard Library. Many large journal publishers have made the scholarly communication environment fiscally unsustainable and academically restrictive. This situation is exacerbated by efforts of certain publishers (called “providers”) to acquire, bundle, and increase the pricing on journals.

Knowledge Cartels versus Knowledge Rights | Enculturation

Knowledge Cartels versus Knowledge Rights | Enculturation | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

Excellent texte.

Conclusion: A simple proposal, narrow in scope and direct in argumentation, the Budapest Open Access Initiative is not naïve: it recognizes that scholarship is not free to produce and that costs are associated with research. But again as the authors point out, the overall costs of providing open access to research is actually lower than the traditional systems of distribution (something the Harvard librarians have picked up on). Furthermore the solutions, as they point, out are simple: self-archiving, and open access journals. But even more to the point, the authors recognize that beyond economics this is a social issue, an ethical one. In order to secure the benefits of research for all, not just for a small subset of the global population research ought to be made open. As the authors argue, open access is the way to build “a future in which research and education in every part of the world are that much more free to flourish.” Although there are economic concerns and practical considerations, we need to recognize that this is a social justice issue, an ethical call to which we ought to start adhering

La publication savante en crise -

La publication savante en crise - | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
UdeM Nouvelles

«Dans presque tous les pays du monde, la recherche est soutenue par les fonds publics. Quand les chercheurs publient leurs résultats dans les revues scientifiques, ils le font gratuitement. Ces résultats sont aussi évalués bénévolement par leurs pairs. Et les revues exigent très souvent qu'on leur cède les droits sur ces mêmes articles. Par la suite, les éditeurs ou les grandes sociétés savantes vendent leurs revues à prix d'or aux bibliothèques... financées aussi par des fonds publics! On se retrouve dans une boucle sans fin où l'argent des contribuables paie la production de la recherche et l'accès à la recherche pendant que les éditeurs et les sociétés savantes tirent des profits de 30 à 45 % de cette opération, avant impôts. C'est scandaleux!» s'exclame Jean-Claude Guédon.

Times Higher Education - How publishers feather their nests on open access to public money | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

The debate over open access to research has dominated headlines in Times Higher Education and elsewhere. But despite the focus on the issue, including the review led by Dame Janet Finch that reported in June, one crucial question has not yet been fully addressed: how have we reached a situation in which university libraries up and down the country are cancelling journal subscriptions?
