The story has reached the mainstream media. Tim Worstall of the libertarian Adam Smith Institute has contributed an article about it to Forbes: “Elsevier’s Publishing Model Might be About to Go Up in Smoke.” Meanwhile in The Guardian, Martin Paul Eve of the University of Sussex questions the aspects of the ecology of scholarly communication that are at the root of these problems.
