Abstract

Originally created for facilitating scientific communication, the internet in principle makes scientific journals no longer necessary. Yet, in an almost opposite fashion to what happened to newspaper publishing, the $25 billion annual income scholarly publishing industry has further flourished following the advent of the internet. Expanding the education of today’s students and young researchers to include modern scholarly communication is the key requisite for the transition to open science.

Subject Areas
