An Economic Analysis of Scientific Research Publishing

An Economic Analysis of Scientific Research Publishing:

The report has been published to support constructive dialogue between key players in the scientific publishing field – publishers, researchers, academic institutions and funders. The ultimate aim of this dialogue would be to develop a publishing system that meets the needs of all groups, and best promotes the public good of scientific work – that is, disseminates research outputs to all who have an interest in them.

A good overview of problems, believes, solutions in scientific e-publishing, but the latest innovative incentives and projects are not mentioned – what about Weblogs, Creative Commons???
