Isn't it about time scholarship invested in a modern infrastructure for text, data and code, instead of antiquated journals? How much longer do we have to wait for the first modernization since 1995?

Scholarship has bigger fish to fry than access
Jan Velterop called it "Plan I" for infrastructure. Here is how it can tackle the reliability, affordability and functionality problems plaguing scholarship. #openscience #planS #EOSC
A thought-provoking piece on the need for a modern publishing infrastructure integrating text, data, and code.
With people talking about a "mental health crisis" among scholars, how ethical is it to impose yet more stress on scholars, when the problems can be tackled more effectively by forcing institutions to fix their problems? #plans #oa #openaccess #openscience
Scholarship has bigger fish to fry than access Some funders would agree with you - read The debate over open access is missing the point free members - or email the editor/author to ask for copy
The latest from proposes “Plan I” - we are running out of letters in the alphabet for all these Plans (perhaps we need Plan N—just take a Nap and see if things are sorted by the time we wake up…), but this is a useful provocation, as always
Ich bin sicher die meisten in diesem Thread haben es schon gelesen aber falls nicht: hat ja schon häufiger dazu etwas geschrieben. Gerade kürzlich
Scholarship has bigger fish to fry than access
Why force already stressed scholars to fix the problems their institutions have created, when we can force institutions to fix the problems themselves? #plans #oa #openaccess #openscience
To all consortia, funders, #DEAL, #planS etc.: stop the closed-door negotiations, stop pressuring researchers! Instead, help our institutions get their priorities right, so they divest from antiquated journals and invest in modern infrastructure: #eosc #oa
I'm merely saying that focusing on public access is premature and could backfire in a number of ways (not just health. Health is just a more recent concern). I'm saying focus on the more important stuff and get access as a side effect
lol, you're attempts at being provocative are really too cute! :-) No dear, I'm merely saying that rather than treating a small symptom at the cost of the patient dying, it would be smarter to tackle the disease: But I think you knew that :-)
Or, perhaps, we can hit two birds with the same stone and fix the pernicious incentives that contribute to the unreliability of our work, with an #openaccess literature as an added side-benefit of implementing an #opensicence infrastructure?
Easy. Here are a dozen solutions: Please let me know if they can't get you the paper you need, I'll get it for you. Access used to be a noteworthy problem until about 2012 or so. Now we have much more serious problems:
What, the last 3% or so? I don't think I have encountered an insurmountable paywall in 5, 6 years now. To me, OA is all but realized
You are so dead on. I also think it's a complete waste of time,. money and effort. There are more important things t fix which, if we fix them right, lead to #OA anyway
Now that most of the #openaccess issue is solved: , maybe we should focus more on the real problems our scholarly infrastructure is facing: reliability, affordability and functionality? #publishing #oa #openscience #EOSC #plans
Why are the European Open Science Cloud ( #EOSC ) and #plans addressing the same problem with different means? Our outdated infrastructure needs an integrated overhaul! #openscience
