  • Speaker: Market failure in the research world,

    Springer are best avoided. A couple of years back I had to pay more than $100 to get a copy of a Springer-published, edited collection I had contributed to.

  • Speaker: Market failure in the research world,

    Thank you Mark for this most useful--but a little disturbing--commentary. It is also timely as I am on the editorial board of an Australian journal which is about to plunge into the murky waters of commercial publishing. It is a highly regarded journal and was ranked as an A journal under the now-discarded system. It also is a place where NZ academics get published.

    I have sent this commentary to my fellow editorial board members.

    Up to now (issue No. 152) the journal has been hosted and partly funded by particular departments or research centres in various Australian universities. But that seems to be coming to an end.
    What has really exacerbated the situation is the practice of the host university in gobbling up royalty payments which flow from their CAL system, without returning any money to the journal which should be entitled to it.. In respect of the journal I am involved with, it is a matter of $A10,000s

    Who has responsibility for Broadcasting /Communications? It seems to rate so lowly these days,

  • Hard News: News from home ..., in reply to Rosemary McDonald,

    I think this is akin to the Mom and Pop Investor myth. I recall an item on the Morning Report business news some weeks ago, about the dramatic rise of multiple property owners (ie those who own more than seven properties) in Auckland and Christchurch, I don't think it included your average retiree,

    When Ollie Newland declared on Morning Report last week that 'property investment was a social good' I did choke on my toast!

    The least we can offer is the 90 day provision ?

    I am just wondering what or who all those folk merrily abandoning Labour might be offering, as alternatives to their apparent assent to years more of National and their reactionary politics,

    If we ran all real estate agents out of town, it would be a good start.

  • Capture: The Colour Of Spring, in reply to JacksonP,

    I will miss you at the Elbow concert tonight. Something got in the way but look for a tall, lean fellow named Gareth who is making good use of my ticket.
