Academic Publishing is a Goddamned Exploitative Farce
E Price

Maybe I am a dreamer, but what would it take for groups of scholars in their respective fields to start their own peer-reviewed journals? Apparently, there are a ton of PhDs who have turned their backs on, or been turned away from, traditional applications of their education, so what if we were to all work together to self-promote? It would ease the discomfort of working for free because we’d be creating a new paradigm. I can dream, right?! The Modernists did it, so why can’t the Postmoderns shift what is still considered traditional? Our universities have forgotten their true purpose, but we have not.
