Internet and Free Access to Scholarly Publications

Abstract : The mean price of scholarly journals is now three times higher than it was in the mid-1980s. In the meantime, the development of Internet and of informal exchanges between researchers progressively led to the Open Access Initiative which aims at freely disseminating scientific publications. This article introduces to the consequences of this evolution and presents the path toward a new economic model of scholarly publications.
