    The first problem to understand about our current system for publishing research is that, in this system, all scientific discovery and most of the public tax dollars set-aside for research ends-up in the hands of the largest publishing companies.
    The flow of information and tax dollars in scientific research in our current system has researchers buying back their own published findings. This is why almost all information and public tax money quickly shifts to these companies who have created the journals of many research paradigms, practically flooding the market in order to accommodate as much free research as scientists are willing to give away.

    The OneSci Research Network fixes this problem

    Seems a bit self-serving, this post.... and there are many open access journals.

    This post is self serving. Is the sharing and promotion of science tools and information not permitted by this forum?

    This is a discussion forum, and if the topic you wish to post does not foster discussion then it should go in General Discussion or Links. I will be moving this one to Links.

    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.
    ~Jean-Paul Sartre

    I don't mind the post being moved to "links," as it does have 1 outbound url. However, I think that the topic of open-access publishing would have piqued some interest.

    I find your post interesting. I am very happy that changes are being made to how knowledge is disseminated.

    In what sub-forum was your thread originally posted?
