If you are interested, you can read my full proposal. My chapter is entitled "The Botnet: Webs of Hegemony/Zombies Who Publish" and uses a metaphor from the information security arena to explain the constraints under which researchers, libraries and publishers are operating, for the most part against themselves. I intend, in the working-through of this piece, to theorize an economically viable model for a transition to an upfront-payment gratis-provision Open Access model through subsidized support for early-career researchers in order to effect a paradigm shift.
In the meantime: BRAINS!
