Editor's Notes

  • Researchers communicate differently to other people. Central to this is the social contract of science.
    We agree to disseminate our work widely, allowing others to validate it and build upon it.
    The best and arguably only way to do this effectively is OA, so we are an OA publisher.
    If you don’t do this, it can be termed scientific malpractice, and it applies not only to results.
  • OA still has a long way to go to reach its potential
    It needs to be affordable, not only in the dev world, but here too
    It needs to be available in the humanities and social sciences, as well as STEM
    It needs to include a full range of research outputs
    Large legacy publishers are actively opposing
  • All factors of successful data publication
    Need to ensure authors motivated
