Academic Publishers Enemies of Science

The academic publishing system has bothered me for some time, seems like it’s only getting worse:

The Research Works Act, introduced in the US Congress on 16 December, amounts to a declaration of war by the publishers.

Sounds like the act is basically an end-run around the NIH rules requiring open access. Nice. I’m pleased to see my society is not part of the Association of American Publishers, which fully supports the legislation.

Have something to say about this?
