Traditional publishing is 'no longer fair or sustainable'

Chief executive of 9,000-member UK group argues that while 'authors' earnings are going down generally, those of publishers are increasing. 

After figures released this week showed professional authors' median annual incomes have collapsed to to £11,000, The Society of Authors' chief executive has claimed that traditional publishers' terms "are no longer fair or sustainable".

Stewart-Marshall's insight:
All the more reason that all universities should move open access publishing of their research - using an open source system such OJS - https://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/ - with automatic listing in Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) - http://doaj.org/ ; :-)
