Open Science Coffee: Direct publishing as an answer to problems in scholarly publishing

Thursday 9 February 2023
An open OSCoffee for anyone to join!


Direct publishing as an answer to problems in scholarly publishing


Academic publishing is problematic. It is slow and costs a fortune. The decision process about article acceptance is Kafkaesque, and ultimately most journal articles disappear behind pay walls.

But preprint services enable fast open publishing, journal independent peer review services make peer review transparent and diamond journals could circulate the articles within specific audiences. All these academic services are free of charge.

Why don’t we use them? This question will be addressed in this OSCoffee, open to all!
