Self-Archive Unto Others as Ye Would Have them Self-Archive Unto You
Self-Archiving, Open Access, and the Research Impact Cycle
Scholars and scientists do research, to create new knowledge that can
then be applied to improve people's lives. They are paid to do research,
but not to report their research. That they do for free, because it is
not royalty-revenue from their research papers but their “research
impact” that pays their salaries, funds their further research, gets
them prizes, etc.
