'Disrupting the Publisher-Academic Complex' - a talk by Peter Murray-Rust at the British Library on 21 April 2018
From Ewan McAndrew
Disruption does not mean illegality - it can be new technology, new philosophies, new people. We need a "Knowledge Spring" to break free of licences and all the other restrictive rubbish. Today's publishers are like Bradbury's firemen (F451) - their role is to prevent reading.
Peter Murray-Rust, University of Cambridge and ContentMine Ltd.
Part of the Decentralised Data Infrastructure for Science event at the British Library on 21-22 April 2018.
