    Journals: The Conversation: How to break free from the stifling grip of luxury journals
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Friday, December 20, 2013


    Nobel Prize laureate Randy Schekman recently criticized the journals Nature, Cell and Science for being "luxury journals" that are more interested in subscriptions than important science. Unsurprisingly, his own views received some criticism. In this commentary, Prof. Schekman suggests a way forward.


    It is understandable that some see hypocrisy in my criticism of a system that has served my own career well. I have published extensively in Nature, Cell and Science. I have now, of course, won the Nobel Prize. It is therefore easy, some have said, for me to voice my concerns. But that, in some ways, is exactly the point. I am saying what many others believe but feel they cannot say, because they fear their careers might be damaged.
