- Authors need more guidance (on real and illusory problems), e.g. on licensing
- We need to minimize harm to authors, because there are risks in opening up research, even if it is for the public good
Unintended consequences of “open”:
- Predatory open-access journals
For-profit republication of open access articles, (at least mostly) legal under CC BY terms (see CC licences).
Open science needs specific goals like “all articles should be free to read”.
