The authors suggest a publishing model that would redistribute funding and the role of different actors – scientists, metric companies, librarians and so on – to maximize the impact of their respective skills for the benefit of science. Research papers and scientific data should be published in several specialized, open and publicly funded storage repositories. Peer review should be self-organized in a centralized and publicly funded peer review platform.
