The fifth Q&A in a series exploring the current state of Open Access has been published. On this occasion the questions are answered by Joseph Esposito, President of Processed Media.
Esposito is a former publisher and now publishing consultant. He is also a self-professed "advocate of open access publishing", so the topic of OA is clearly right up his street.
Esposito has a number of noteworthy things to say. He argues, for instance, that despite its merits, and apparent traction, OA will nevertheless remain a marginal activity. As he says, "I don't see OA becoming the primary form of scholarly publishing."
