Het spoor uitbreiden heeft geen zin, wat een treurige, politieke visie. Breda-Utrecht, 4 sporen Utrecht-Arnhem, etc. alles zinloos. Betekent dat 10-minutentrein nog meer sprinterreizigers extra laat wachten. Is dat zinvol? ProRail: het spoor is bijna vol -

Sterk redeneren is anders, ProRail. Ruimtegebrek zegt niets over zinvol zijn maar wel over mogelijk zijn. Zinloos is het bij gebrek aan vervoervraag. Breda-Utrecht heeft ruimte én vervoervraag. Maar geen interesse van I&M. In jargon: het ministerie heeft een andere verkeersfocus.

Interesting. So with no cost, just the flick of a switch 's could offer links to millions of open access available papers in repositories, but they won't, where 's does offer them. How does that serve clients?

That is jumping to conclusions. I have said nothing about what academics can or cannot do. Yes, they do hold some keys. But academics in powerful positions shaped their ideas in the current system and derive a lot of their prestige and power from e.g. their chief editorships.

I really think you are severely underestimating what big publishers can do here and what they fail to do mostly.

"Publishers are providing a service that academics claim is needed." I am willing to go with that as far as there is explicit and detailed evidence. Which academics are claiming where that publishers are providing what kind of service that they (who do they speak for)? need?

It is not so that those editors can do whatever they want with that journal. All work is done by researchers, within limits set by publishers. Also the implicit model of scholarly communication that editors work with is reinforced by Elsevier's internal and public communication.

There are clearly two sides to this: yes researchers are addicted to the prestige journals brands deliver, but publishers do everything to maintain that. Smokers should not light that cigarette, but maybe big tobacco should not direct their billions to maintain the addiction.

Good to ask basic questions. Not sure though these are the most important ones. Suggestion: 1) What are the goals of open science? 2) How do I as a scientist benefit? 3) Same as your third question. In short these are why-how-what. The tactical how lies in benefit to scientists.
