Scholars Demand Academic Research Be More Easily Accessible | Writer’s Relief

Finding scholarly journal articles if you are not affiliated with a university or college can take lots of time and energy (you have to do research just to start your research!). Writer’s Relief knows that writers who rely on scholarly research are often frustrated by academic red tape and paywalls.

But some scholars are calling for an end to the exclusivity of academic content in the scholarly publishing industry. In fact, this article cited by Boing Boing notes:

In a stirring unsigned editorial, the New Scientist calls the scholarly publishing industry “indefensible,” noting that the business of publishing tax-funded research and then selling it to tax-funded institutions has produced the most profitable industry in the world, where 40% margins dwarf those commanded by oil or finance.

Learn more about this call to change the scholarly publishing industry.
