We never stop writing the future – but who is able to read it? The current system of research publishing has a number of major problems: universities are locked into paying escalating journal subscription prices, while at the same time subsidising the publishing process. Universities/academics are allowing copyright of research material to be given away to commercial publishers free of charge; academics are being prevented from achieving wide dissemination of their papers by publishers who wish to restrict circulation to subscribers only; academics have problems accessing papers in their field because of publishers restrictions on access.
