(i still have a few collaborative papers to write and these will be published properly for the benefit of my co-authors)

i will soon publish a paper on a pre-print server, with no intention of submitting to an academic journal. my reasons for this are manifold 2/38
1. #academia is inherently corrupt & the publication model facilitates this:
- unpaid labour (editors, peer-reviewers,& authors [ok, they do get paid by the uni which oft = public funds yet journals privately profit & we see none of this unlike other forms of publishing]) 3/38

Indian Government is currently paying 1500 crores (~150 million USD) per year for journal subscriptions and around 200 (~20 million USD) crores APC charges for #OpenAccess says @kvijayraghavan @PrinSciAdvGoI speaking at @DSTCPRIISc Unlocking the doors to knowledge repositories
@kvijayraghavan @PrinSciAdvGoI @DSTCPRIISc Knowledge has been the driver of social and economic change. Around 54% of our industry workforce is not skilled. This is not good for a knowledge-based economy. Rural reach is also key to bridge the Rural-Urban divide (India and Bharat).
Research is necessary for a knowledge-based society. 95% of our students go to a state university, where very little research is done! Research is not focussed on our issues and import heavy! There is a need to scale up local resources for conducting research.
