Will researchers really resign as journal editors as part of a Dutch boycott of Elsevier?

In these times of massive scientific production, of huge publication overload and emerging communication technologies, the much revered 'peer review' dogma is showing its limits.
On top of the overpricing problem, it is becoming an additional difficulty in the growing debate on the evolution of scientific communication: the whole process of performing research, sharing results and evaluating researchers must be (and will be, whether we like it or not and whether we control it or not) reconsidered altogether.

A 2,2 Billion € Budget Cut in the next European Research Program Horizon 2020

http://sco.lt/4zwHGT

The European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) will be funded out of a €2.2 billion reduction of the European Research Funding programme Horizon 2020.
Not quite as bad as the €2.7 billion budget cut originally planned, but still disastrous for European Research, since Universities will not benefit much from EFSI.
Stupefying, at a time when everyone agrees that economic bouncing rests largely on Higher Education and Research...

Do hybrid open-access journals double dip?

That is, do they arrange to be paid twice for the same OA articles, once by reader-side subscriptions and then again by author-side article processing charges? Yes. 

From +Bernhard Mittermaier:"The pros and cons of hybrid open access are heavily disputed. A main point of discussion is whether ‘double dipping’ takes place, i.e. paying twice to publish and read the same article. To prove publishers’ assertions that they do not double dip, a survey was conducted of 24 publishers with detailed questions about their pricing policy using concrete examples. The outcome is quite sobering: the results range from partial double dipping to full double dipping, and in no instance did a ‘no double-dipping’ policy mean that no double dipping takes place."

It's hard to find someone who'll argue against the notion that science should be open and transparent. In practice, however, much of what scientists do is not
