"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
New Journal Article Announcement 
25th-Jun-2012 12:47 pm
My latest piece for Publishing Research Quarterly has just been posted to the Springer Online First website. The title is "Opening the Wrong Gate? The Academic Spring and Scholarly Publishing in the Humanities and Social Sciences." The editor tells me it will be the lead article in the September issue.

Congrats. This looksa like a brilliant and OMG timely article. Though there's a little bit of irony that access is 35 euros :P

Well...the argument I'm making rests in large part upon a correct understanding of how publishing works, and most academics don't really understand the publishing industry. So, placing it in a journal dedicated to publishing research is a way to directly signal to them that I'm not just bullshitting about the basics. Of the two publishing research journals I know of, this one has a wider subscription base. And besides, the article is mostly addressed to those people who would have institutional means to get access, anyway. :-P

Thanks as well for the congrats. :-)
