    I recommend the articles Scientific Utopia I, II: http://arxiv.org/abs/1205.1055 and http://arxiv.org/abs/1205.4251 by Brian A. Nosek and collaborators. They are long and detailed, and I haven’t absorbed everything yet, but I think they are likely to be very useful for all those reading this forum. They write from the perspective of the discipline of psychology, but most of it is applicable to mathematics.

    Along the same lines, a very nice slide presentation by Bjoern Brembs: http://www.slideshare.net/brembs/whats-wrong-with-scholarly-publishing-today-ii Nicely licensed for reuse.

    I think a detailed reading of these articles will be more useful to readers of this forum than most of our speculating so far. A quick summary in my own words for those who haven’t read the articles. The authors propose a 6-step process in SU I:

    1) universal green OA via self-archiving 2) universal OA via gold/diamond model 3) evaluative part of peer review occurs after publication 4) feedback part of peer review decoupled from publication venue, performed by specialized services 5) incentivize high quality peer review by requiring reviews to be public and signed 6) open and continuous peer review, crowdsourcing

    In SU II they consider how to deal with incentives and human frailties.
