Video: Timo Hannay on CC-based science publishing

July 14th, 2008 by dwentworth

In case you missed it over at Open Access News, there’s a new 3-part video documentary on publishing open content using Creative Commons licenses. Part two (below) is an interview with Nature’s Timo Hannay — an especially interesting bit in light of the recent discussions about business models for sustainable open access (OA) publishing.

If there’s anything that the interview makes clear, it’s that scientific publishing is undergoing a profound transformation, and people in OA are confronting its most difficult challenges head-on. They’re freeing science while providing us with valuable lessons about the kinds of publishing models that can work in the digital era — a boon on both counts.
