Forum on the Changing Standards for Academic Publishing
Via Slashdot, this forum from Nature Publishing looks to be an ongoing series of pieces on Open Access and the implications for publishing. From the introduction, Declan Butler says:
The core functions of publishing at its best share a commitment to impose intellectual rigour and high editorial standards on an exponentially increasing body of knowledge: to distil out the most important parts of that information, make it more accessible and place it in a wider context. As the flood of information grows, more and not less human editorial skill will be needed to focus and make sense of it, and the invisible hands of professional publishers and editors, with their associated costs, will if anything become more crucial.
Looks to be worth a read-through.
