The concept of Double-bind Scholarly Publishing
The process of double bind works well in scholarly publishing when some groups want publishers to do more and more with less pay. The New York Times is on the case. Working with ProPublica the Times has exposed a pattern of inadequate revelation of conflicts of interest. This is a vital stuff and the Times is to be commended for exposing this. For all its solipsism and sanctimony, it understands what we want from the research community. After all what the public wants is better science, not open science.
