Brava Valentina!
commento + che equo...
e ce ne sarebbero altri...
tanto per fare un esempio c'Ŕ anche il nuovo modello PeerJ che
sembrerebbe assai promettente...
ciao a tutti

> Uno dei commenti all'articolo indicato da Rosa:
> "Open access to research is inevitable, but several of the statements quoted
> are disingenuous. The cost of data processing falls by half every 18 months;
> why has the cost of electronic journal subscriptions been rising? Nature
> Publishing Group employs a staff of 100 but publishes more than 3000
> articles/yr. They say it would cost $10k per article to go open access. Are
> they really paying their staff an AVERAGE salary of $300k??? Elsevier say
> global R&D budgets grow by 4% per year while library budgets are flat and
> that this is the cause of the gap in journal affordability. If this were
> true, why are subscription costs rising at 7% per year?
> Universities are suffering a decline in public support because the broader
> public is being denied access to academic work. At some point the
> universities need to answer why they are allowing publicly supported faculty
> and staff to donate their time and effort in support of proprietary
> publishers. And the public academic institutions need to explain why they
> are routinely transferring valuable intellectual property (copyright) to
> these publishers without receiving compensation or undertaking an open and
> transparent negotiating process."
> E' una battaglia lunga e difficile.Unfair.

> "Open access to research is inevitable, says Nature editor-in-chief.
> Philip Campbell says the experience of open access to scientific
> research is 'very compelling' for readers and scientists".

> Prima di entusiasmarci troppo per questa notizia leggiamo che, sul
> modello economico di Nature, l'autore osserva:
> ""..... Nature Publishing Group, he said, employed around 100 editors
> across its titles whose job is to assess submissions and organise peer
> review. Additional investment was required to maintain the digital
> platforms that host papers. All of these costs are currently met by a
> combination of subscriptions and fees from authors paying for
> so-called gold open access – an option operated by Nature where
> authors pay an upfront fee for their paper to be available immediately.
> If gold open access became the norm for the primary literature,
> Campbell said that the cost per article could be in excess of $10,000
> to publish in highly selective journals such as Nature, Cell or
> Science"".
> L'articolo riporta commenti anche di altri editori, tra cui Elsevier:
> ""Alicia Wise, director of universal access at Elsevier, addressed
> concerns from academics that the cost of journal subscriptions was too
> high. She said there was a gap between what university libraries would
> like to have in their collections and what they can afford to
> subscribe to, but that "gap exists not because of our prices or our
> profit, but because, for decades, there's been a widening gap between
> library budgets and the global investment in R&D".""
