Abstract

After showing how the advent of the internet, in an almost opposite fashion to what happened to newspaper publishing, has led to further flourishing of the $25 billion scholarly publishing industry, I show how the unexpected expansion of preprints to all scientific disciplines beyond physics, mathematics and computer science is actually reshaping scientific communication at large and then, inevitably, scientific publishing. I thus provide arguments substantiating my viewpoint on why and how expanding the education of today’s students and young researchers to include modern scholarly communication will be instrumental for the transition to open science.

Comment: It is now made clear in the Introduction section how expanding the education of today’s students and young researchers to include modern scholarly communication is instrumental for the transition to open science. It is now clear in every section how the content is related to the paper's centra thesis, along with the arguments I'am making and with evidence available supporting my arguments.
