Open Access Publishing hasn’t fulfilled its promises

The New England Journal of Medicine or NEJM thinks open-access is not a good idea. An editorial published by Charlotte Haug, one of the correspondents of NEJM reports that the “experiment” has failed, and free access to scientific publications hasn’t delivered on its promises. NEJM is particularly concerned about “Plan S”, a plan in Europe that suggests that all scientists whose work is funded by the community be required to publish their results in open-access venues. Plan S is due to take upshot in 2020.
