The Dark Side of Online Journals

“Until about 1960, not-for-profit entities, such as scholarly societies and academic institutions, were the primary publishers of academic work. Theodore Bergstrom, economist at the University of California-Santa Barbara, reveals the changes that have occurred in one field, economics, since that time. According to Bergstrom’s research, 30 English-language economics journals existed in 1960, and almost all of them were published by not-for-profit entities.

By the year 2000, there were 300 journals, and two-thirds were published by commercial entities”.
