    Default Paywall: The Business of Scholarship

    Paywall: The Business of Scholarship, produced by Jason Schmitt, provides focus on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google.

    The bottom line is that the vast majority of the public have no access to the vast majority of publically funded research, thus locking the public out of the knowledge commons. This is a highly recommended, thought provoking documentary.
