Abstract

Since the WWII, the landscape of scientific communication has quietly, yet deeply, changed. The advent of the Science Citation Index in the ’70’s, the growth of commercial publishers, and, finally, the fundamental affordances of digitization and the Internet have converged to create an oligopolistic structure to scientific communication. Scientific communication has thus been globalized in ways that are not all that different from economic globalization. Open Access may be a way to correct this situation, but only if some further conditions are also respected and implemented. The presentation will explore some of these conditions to reach the goal of universality for science.
