No Free Lunches: We Should Resist the Push to Rush Research Online

John H. Ewing, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, mirrored on FOS Forum, Oct 12, 2001
Commentary by Stephen Downes

In this article published in the Chronicle of Higher Education John H. Ewing argues against the movement toward free online academic research. He argues that this will only harm the smaller jorunals, leaving the field dominated by major publishers. And he argues that free online publications cannot provide the "frills" that subscription based publications can provide. Ewing's article is in the subscription-only area of the Chronicle, naturally, but it is mirrored in the FOS Forum for all to see (and comment).
