These are such absurdities that led to the Berlin Declaration <http://
For example, now in France my employer the CNRS (National Centre for
Scientific Research) is encouraging explicitly to publish scientific
writings directly in the open-access archive HAL <http://
hal.ccsd.cnrs.fr/index.php?langue=en>, modelled after the US arXiv,
before or instead of publication in standard scientific journals.
What worries me though is the lack of peer review in this case: peer
review is painful at times (I am precisely revising this week a paper
into which I had already put several months of efforts), but always
beneficial to quality at the end of the day.
