How to run an Open-Access Scientific Journal – the cheap way

» An efficient journal The Occasional Pamphlet.

Excellent text on the “business model” for an open-access scientific journal. It shows how it may be possible to publish a journal with a $10 tag per page, against the “$5.000 average revenue that scholarly publishers receive.”

A must read. A must think. And certainly something useful to be learned for the “CITAR Journal“.

Thanks to George Tzanetakis for pointing this text out following a discussion on the Marsyas development/user mailing lists about my previous post on this blog on “If you want reproducible science, the software needs to be open source“.

And another interesting article, titled “Open access publishing should not favour those with deep pockets“, with a proposal on how to run an Open Access Journal without payments from readers nor authors.

I couldn’t agree more with this idea of open source as mandatory for reproducible science.
