I just published an article here on why academic publishing is dying. It is not that we academicians don’t want to publish; we do. However, walls taller than any we can climb, stand in our ways. Seldom some can break through with major tricks and others after major fights and debates–one article was demanded for retraction by 199 academicians/researchers (1 letter with 199 signatories!) from the British Medical Journal (it did not happen though!) because the truth was revealed about 60+ years of corruption and financial interests in the field of nutritional research. The fact that the article was not retracted is a huge win! However, more often than not, articles are not even considered for publication by the corruption of the academic publishing process.
Please read and share the article
