Quotation of the day

April 11th, 2005 by Ross Scaife

Alun Salt, commenting on why we in the humanities don’t have the functional equivalent of Arxiv in place yet:

[T]echnophobia is an endearing character quirk in the Arts rather than a sign of academic incompetence. I don’t think it’s a long term problem. Researchers who are more interested in spreading their ideas than supporting established structures will have greater influence on successive generations and there will be a move to open access publishing, because researchers who ignore it will be ignored.
