Abstract

The broken incentive structure in science can be blamed for much of the alarming trends of the past decades, such as the replicability crisis and dwindling research budgets. Björn Brembs argues that by reforming the scholarly publishing structure, we can solve several current issues at once. One solution is to use the already existing infrastructure and know-how in our scholarly institutions. An institution-based publishing system like SciELO could also support a reputation system that aligns the incentives for the researcher with science and the public.
