Academic Publishing is a Goddamned Exploitative Farce
E Price

I mostly agree with you, but I think that something that you didn’t talk about and which is one of the major issues is that in fact most researchers just continue to feed this racket by publishing in the journals while there are open access platforms ! If the researchers started to stop thinking about this stupid impact factor and started to publish in these free platforms, things might change… don’t you think ? And the issue is that if you decide to only publish in that open platforms, maybe the others researchers won’t want to work with you anymore, because you won’t help them publish in Nature…
