While most science is funded by the public, the resulting journal articles are often not publicly available. While professional publishers do profit from the current system, they also do provide a service. I urge scientists to make informed decisions on these issues. Below are some of the links I found useful when forming my own opinions:

  • There is an active boycott of Elsevier Journals based on the high costs of their journals, the bundling of their journals and their support for legislation that aim to restrict free exchange of information. People interested in this controversy should read Elsevier’s response to these criticisms. Unfortunately, from my perspective the documented campaign contributions from Elsevier and its executives to a sponsor of the Research Works Act (which would allow publishers to refuse public access) appears at odds with their stated desire to “de-escalate from the constant cycle of legislation and lobbying”. Personally, I think that the Federal Research Public Access Act does support Elsevier’s aims – it extends the National Institutes of Health’s Public Access Policy to other federal agencies: publishers would enjoy a period of exclusive control over research they publish (allowing them to re-coup their costs), but the legislation ensures that this work eventually enters the public domain (as the work is largely paid for by the public tax payers).
    Update: On 27 Feb 2012 Elsevier withdrew support for the RWA, and within hours the sponsors stated they will no longer push this legislation

  • I urge all scientists to use RoMEO to see if journals allow self-archiving of pre-print, post-print or final PDF. The business model of open access journals allows self-archiving of the final PDF. With respect to the conventional publishers, note that some allow self-archiving of the post-print work while others do not. Authors should use this information when considering where to submit. Likewise, when scientists are asked to provide a free review for a journal, they should consider whether the journal allows the author to self-archive a revision that includes your input. In this regard, Elsevier is better than many other publishers.
  • If you are a US citizen who supports the Federal Research Public Access Act or opposes the Research Works Act, the Alliance for Taxpayer Access has an easy to use web page for contacting your legislators.
  • Update: Articles in The Guardian, The Scientist, The Economist, and Physics Today describe recent events. It is terrific to see major funding organizations like the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society and the Wellcome Trust back the new eLIFE open-access journal.
