Academics can do it for themselves


John Lindsay ,

Bob Roberts


This paper examines the political economy of the serial publishing industry from the perspective of teaching academics. It goes on to summarise the technological developments which are changing our working environment, in terms of production and delivery of teaching material to students, undertaking research, and producing funding Council key performance indicators. It examines the roles of different players in these scenarios and suggests what areas will be best undertaken by academics and what roles could be undertaken by serial publishers and libraries.
