HOUSE OF COMMONS SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE INQUIRY: IMPROVING THE COMMERCIALISATION OF RESEARCH - A RESPONSE FROM THE PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION
February 14, 2012
Yo. Shark Dog.
A tweet from Cameron Neylon earlier today about this "I'm sorry. What world does the publishers association actually live in? Because its not the one I inhabit". -
This is some of the most egregious horseshit I've seen in a while. Probably best not to read while either drinking anything or in a public place as people will look at you funny as you tear your hair out... -
"There is an entire publishing ecosystem built around this function." aka 'We managed to create a vendor lock-in around us' :) -
Well, but you probably don't *want* to "improve the commercialisation of research"--you probably think it's too damn commercialized already. So you're in a world where research has to do with more than profit. Not the PA's world. -
