Abstract

Poster presented at The 22nd International Conference on Electronic Publishing, Toronto, Canada, Saturday, June 23 2018. Publicly-funded knowledge is, indeed, a common good, and at odds with the all-encompassing for-profit ambitions of information and analytics conglomerates. We argue that universities, researchers and scholarly publishers in the Global South, and from all over the world, also have a responsibility to think critically about the interests of for-profit third-parties. It is crucial that researchers, as key participants and stakeholders in scholarly communications, retain control over how their research is conducted and disseminated.
