Critical Commentary

AO: In this 2016 article by Fecher and Wagner, they argue that academia, in its quest for transforming scientific publication system, has forgetten that sustainable OA requires more than changing publishers’ business models. They argue that academia is once again running the risk of outsourcing the organization of its content and hold that scholarly publishing in a digital age requires a discussion about innovation and infrastructure.
