White paper proposes democratized OA academic journal publishing to solve serials crisis

(1 March 2017, Chicago, IL) Scholastica, a peer review and open access (OA) publishing platform for academic journals, announces Democratizing Academic Journals: Technology, Services, and Open Access, a new white paper on the state of academic journal publishing. The paper proposes an upending of the corporate publisher paradigm to make OA journal publishing sustainable.

The white paper argues that the best solution to make research OA is democratization of journal publishing via widespread adoption of publishing services that will foster competition in the marketplace and allow journals of all sizes to publish on their own.
