The Challenge to Traditional Publishing

Larry Lessig’s blog has an advance copy of an OECD report on scientific publishing and the impact that digital distribution has on traditional models of intermediation through traditional commercial publishers.

I suspect that it has many echoes in the legal research field as well.

Reinforces my mantra that publishers cannot continue to make money simply funnelling public content to us at a markup, but must find ways to add significant value.

The report is at http://www.lessig.org/blog/archives/oecd_sci.pdf
