Scientific Publications: "It is the author's work, it is his or her right"

Want to have a deep look inside of major changes in society? This transscript of a discussion on scientific publications in the UK Science and Technology Committee of the House of Commons indicates that the knowledge society is in full swing and that the scientific community is slowly moving towards a more open and free approach towards scientific research and knowledge transfer in general.

This transscript is also a wonderful manifestation of how knowledge mediaries like publishing houses step by step lose power and impact and how the authors of scientific works, the producers of the knowledge goods traded in the scientific community, gain power.
