Abstract:Some scholars have urged dramatically new models for scholarly publishing, often condemning learned societies for their failure to embrace those models. Why are societies cautious? Because they have experience. They recognize that many of the enthusiastic efforts to provide open access to all scholarly literature may ultimately have the opposite effect.
