"Speaking as a person who is employed by Elsevier (on the product side, not the journals side, and not speaking for Elsevier as a whole), I think I'm just trying to get a product out that solves a problem for researchers. I think many of us see rights restrictions as a hindrance to product development. Having to have a rights management system built into everything causes us to incur a development cost and makes it harder to prototype and test new ideas. However, the current business model is what fuels our development, so what it comes down to is that the company does some good, but also does some things that probably wouldn't be good if we were to reinvent the scholarly publishing system from the ground up, post-Internet. Each person has to answer the question about what they think is morally acceptable for themselves, but most people who engage in a grown-up form of moral reasoning can get beyond a dualistic moral stance and accept that like most things in life, there's some good..." - Mr. Gunn
Mr. Gunn, I do not think that using "grown-up" in your argumentation is very helpful. Regarding the less good things of Elsevier, is despite their huge profits they refuse to invest in anger in new technologies, new paradigms. That is, it indeed fuels development, but just a small bit, and most goes as profit to the owners. If you really want to play the moral reasoning side of this,... more... - Egon Willighagen

"But Easternblot's point is that print media isn't inherently more stable or secure. How much research was destroyed in the riots in the Arab Spring and subsequent fighting in Iraq and elsewhere? The CLOCKSS system that EB refers too was developed over many years by a consortium of librarians and publishers, exactly the sort of people to whom we have always entrusted the job of preservation of research. These people know what they're doing." - Mr. Gunn

"There's http://experiment.com and others like that propose exactly this, but some people are already using [Indiegogo](https://www.indiegogo.com/project...), [Kickstarter](https://www.kickstarter.com/project...), and [RocketHub](http://www.rockethub.com/project...) for this." - Mr. Gunn

"All very good points, but when you take these concerns to funders and publishers, as I have, they say that what they do is driven by what researchers want. You see the same dynamic in the popular press. People complain about clickbait, but respected newspapers are getting more and more into clickbait from watching the success of things like Buzzfeed and Upworthy. So we have to bring about change from within. As long as the belief that you have to publish in C/N/S to get grants exists, people will still compete to publish in C/N/S. You, I, and everyone else who reviews papers or grants has to stand up against this and bring change from within." - Mr. Gunn

"I can't speak for all of Elsevier, but the Mendeley team quite likes F1000Research and I know many within Elsevier who also appreciate the approach. Elsevier has yet to launch their own "megajournal"-style journal like PLOS ONE, but they have experimented with open peer review and you never know what the future may hold... ;-)" - Mr. Gunn

"With F1000Research and others such as PLOS ONE, the money comes from the authors & this also allows the journal to retain editorial staff." - Mr. Gunn

"As Rebecca mentioned above, many have tried to build open peer review platforms and one thing we know is that putting articles up and hoping they'll be found by the right person just doesn't work. There are too many articles & too people who have something worthwhile to say about any one given article. Additionally, the people who have the most to say have the least time and inclination to do so, particularly on a site which is new to them. That's why I think Pubmed Commons has the best chance among non-journal platforms." - Mr. Gunn

"In fact, no one does review for the journals with problems, but that doesn't stop these outfits from listing many prestigious academics as reviewers without their knowledge or permission." - Mr. Gunn

"The best examples in this space (PLOS ONE, eLife, PeerJ, Scientific Reports, and F1000Research) keep a strict firewall between editorial and financial. No one involved in the acceptance decision knows if the manuscript has paid full fare or qualified under a fee waiver scheme. They also use academic editors and reviewers, who are external to the journal, to give reviews and make recommendations, which insulates them from some bias." - Mr. Gunn
