Communicating Mathematics in the Digital Era by Jonathan Borwein, E.M. Rocha, Jose Francisco Rodrigues

By Jonathan Borwein, E.M. Rocha, Jose Francisco Rodrigues

The electronic period has dramatically replaced the ways in which researchers seek, produce, submit, and disseminate their clinical paintings. those approaches are nonetheless speedily evolving as a result of advancements in details technological know-how, new achievements in computing device technology applied sciences, and projects corresponding to DML and open entry journals, digitization tasks, clinical reference catalogs, and electronic repositories. those alterations have brought on many mathematicians to play an lively half within the advancements of the electronic period, and feature led mathematicians to advertise and speak about new rules with colleagues from different fields, corresponding to know-how builders and publishers. This e-book is a suite of contributions through key leaders within the box, delivering the paradigms and mechanisms for generating, looking, and exploiting clinical and technical scholarship in arithmetic within the electronic period.

The Internet has changed that. Now everybody operates in the open and independent journals have become more visible. Independent journals are very inexpensive, and are not under pressure to increase annual subscription rates just because investors are expecting higher profit margins. Independent journals that are published within academic departments increase their rates only to offset inflationary pressures, primarily of nonnegotiable costs like printing and mailing, and not so much for pay increases for their small staffs.

Most importantly, decisions about what is purchased are made at a high level, far removed from scholars themselves. In the end, big deals make it more difficult for scholars to make sensible decisions about journals based on price and need. Of course, big deals give the big publishers a substantial advantage over smaller publishers, which is their real purpose. Big deals are hard to resist, although a few prominent libraries have done so. But the commercial publishers are winning. 2 We need to fight back.

Actually, finding the right subscription rate for electronic editions can be quite tricky. It has been suggested that the rate for electronic ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ 36 Implementing Electronic Access for an Independent Journal editions should be set not higher than 80% of the print subscription rate. While this sounds quite reasonable, one must not forget that printing costs depend mostly on the number of printed pages, and not so much on the number of copies. Publishers pay, in essence, only for the first 200 copies or so.
