> The current model of scholarly publishing contains a disastrous blend of
> Stockholm Syndrome and cognitive dissonance. Researchers are helplessly
> locked into the system because of an over-reliance on journal brands for
> their evaluations, including for promotion, grants and tenure. As such, we
> are forced to continue to support the notion that where we publish is more
> important than what we publish – despite all having been told as children
> not to judge a book by its cover. I find it absurd that the most supposedly
> intellectual people in the world cannot find an evaluation system better
> than this.
> We are continuing to actively work against efforts to return control of
> publishing to the academic community. "Plan S" does not seem to make this
> situation better. It is time to take a step back and to think again about
> what we really want.
