​Rant 1​

At the end of the day, publishers, libraries, scholarly societies exist to
disseminate science and serve their constituencies: scholars, funders,
society as a whole. Not the other way around. The burden on those
institutions is to “add value” to the processes the true stakeholders
really value.

​Rant 2

add value in a changing landscape. ​
