Paywall: The Business of Scholarship dives into the need for open access to research and science, questioning the rationale behind the $25.5 billion a year that flows to non-profit academic publishers, examining the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable companies like Apple, Facebook and Google.
