This course will focus on the publisher-dominated scholarly publishing system in the North – subscription and open access, maintained by publisher-controlled metrics and ranking – versus the community-controlled open access publishing system in Latin America and the society-based subscription system and governmental infrastructures in Asia. We will highlight “Fostering Bibliodiversity in Scholarly Communications: A Call for Action,” which calls on the community to make concerted efforts to develop strong, community-governed infrastructures that support diversity in scholarly communications. We will present reasons why we think adoption of Plan S guidelines may lead to a global publishing market again dominated by a handful of Northern publishers who will continue to make very high profits.
