Support the UC's "publish & read" proposal to Elsevier

Reason for signing

  • Elsevier, among others, uses an outdated historical precedent to become a de facto gatekeeper to an enormous amount of collective human scientific knowledge. Its corporate profit in no way contributes to the advancement of human knowledge and civilization. This model of corporate theft of public commons has to evolve or the corporations which engage in it have to be cut out of the loop.
