This article aims at describing the evolution of scientific communication, largely represented by the publication process. It notes the disappearance of the traditional publication on paper and its progressive replacement by electronic publishing, a new paradigm implying radical changes in the whole mechanism. It aims also at warning the scientific community about the dangers of some new avenues and why, rather than subcontracting an essential part of its work, it must take back a full control of its production.

"Open-access journal eLIFE gets £25-million boost from funders to remain free-to-read AND free-to-publish."

The perfect Gold OA...
Let's hope that, in 2022, the business model will be continued. If not, it will need authors' payment to survive and it will become an ideal prey for acquisition by the big publishing establishment. Hence, although the financial support by the 3 funders (the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society, and the Wellcome Trust) must be hailed, their responsibility is seriously engaged. A withdrawal in 2022 would mean disaster.

"Academic publishers like Elsevier, Wiley and Taylor & Francis should reflect that long embargo periods are limiting the effectiveness of legitimate Green Open Access and speeding up alternative models of content sharing that are much more threatening to them than the perceived impact of Green Open Access."

UNESCO and COAR warn rightfully about the growing temptation of solving the problem of scientific publication by a simple flipping from "pay to read, not to publish" to "pay to publish, not to read". The "pay to publish" is not only unethical (conflict of interest: "if I pay enough, you publish"), it is also profoundly anti-democratic, creating a variable-speed system again where the wealthiest will have access to publish in the "poshest" "journals"...UNESCO's warning reveals this consciousness of the dangers we have been talking about for a while...

Ouvert aux élèves de l'enseignement musical belge et aux écoles du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, le Concours de piano de Liège que j'ai l'honneur de présider en est à sa 10e édition.
Son but est de découvrir de jeunes talents et de les encourager mais aussi de valoriser les professeurs et les écoles qui les forment.
Depuis 20 ans, tous les belges qui se sont illustrés au Concours Reine Elisabeth étaient lauréats du Concours de Liège.
La finale 2016 se déroulera le 4 juin dans la prestigieuse Salle philharmonique de Liège.
Venez-y nombreux, pour les soutenir et les encourager !
