  1. someone says:

    Don’t know that much about the culture in biology, but one could “flip” journals?
    key quote:

    Create new journals that operate much more cheaply and wait for them to become established.
    Persuade libraries not to agree to Big Deals with the big publishers.
    Refuse to publish with, write for, or edit for, the big publishers.
    Make sure all your work is freely available online.
    Encourage journals that are supporting the big publishers to leave those publishers and set up in a cheaper and fairer way.
