         Subject: drawbacks of publishing on scientific journals (search for)

dear humanists,
i need your help, if possible, to find some posts
which appeared quite in the past (2 or 3 years?)
about a vexata quaestio: the researcher must
publish to live (publish or perish) but s/he is
forced to publish using a medium - the scientific
journal - which by its nature doesn't allow a
circulation of the results of the research so
wide as the researcher could/would like.

if i remember well, there was a main post,
followed by a good number of replies and comments.

can anyone help me to find those posts?
with many thanks in advance
