When laziness and idealism coincide

Back in April, I blogged about why we should all support open-access journals. But after receiving a long string of referee requests from closed-access journals, I’ve completely changed my mind about this issue. I now believe we should keep Kluwer, Elsevier, and the other publishing conglomerates rolling in dough for as long as possible, and do whatever we can to sabotage the open-access movement. Why? Because as soon as the world switches to open-access, I’ll have no choice but to start accepting referee requests again.
