The OA Interviews: Michaël Bon, Founder of the Self-Journal of Science

Richard Poynder, Open and Shut?, May 31, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

"Right now," says Richard Poynder, "the open access revolution is stalling, and before it will be able to move forward again it will be necessary to recover territory that OA advocates are currently giving away to publishers." Hence this interview (28 page PDF) with Michaël Bon, who launched a new open-access publishing service called the Self-Journal of Science (SJS). Bon argues "OA advocates have been trying to do things back to front, and as a result have played into the hands of publishers.... By contrast, says Bon, SJS is focused on exploiting the new environment to reinvent scholarly communication."
