Buongiorno
vi segnalo questo articolo di cui Cameron neylon e' coautore:
A Journal is a Club: A New Economic Model for Scholarly Publishing
http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2763975
A new economic model for analysis of scholarly publishing—journal
publishing in particular—is proposed that draws on club theory. The
standard approach builds on market failure in the private production (by
research scholars) of a public good (new scholarly knowledge). In that
model publishing is communication, as the dissemination of information. But
a club model views publishing differently: namely as group formation, where
members form groups in order to confer externalities on each other, subject
to congestion. A journal is a self-constituted group, endeavouring to
create new knowledge. In this sense ‘a journal is a club’. The knowledge
club model of a journal seeks to balance the positive externalities due to
a shared resource (readers, citations, referees) against negative
externalities due to crowding (decreased prospect of publishing in that
journal). A new economic model of a journal as a ‘knowledge club’ is
elaborated. We suggest some consequences for the management of journals and
financial models that might be developed to support them.

Cari saluti
