Academic journals in a context of distributed knowledge

Karim J. Gherab Martín and José Luis González Quirós

Abstract:

This chapter gives a general overview of science. We propose to organize knowledge following a model based on Popper’s World 3, obviously keeping in mind the characteristics and social rules that guide the scientific activity and the behaviour of scholars. We believe that digital repositories and scholarly journals may be compatible if efficient technologies of recommendation are put in place. This chapter proposes a scientific publishing model that goes beyond open access, promoting also an open and innovative reuse of articles and challenging the ‘Ingelfinger rule’.
