Participation in the Current System
AbstractDo researchers and scientists participate in the current system of scholarly publishing because they like it, they need it, they donâ€™t have a choice in the matter, or they donâ€™t really care one way or another? What perceptions, considerations and incentives do academicians have for staying the course (like impact factors and tenure points), and what are their pressures and incentives for changing direction (like lowering publishing charges)?
