“After nearly 400 years in the slow-moving world of print, the scientific publishing industry is suddenly being thrust into a fast-paced online world of cloud computing, crowd sourcing and ubiquitous sharing. Long-established practices are being challenged by new ones – most notably, the open-access, author-pays publishing model. In this special issue, Nature takes a close look at the forces now at work in scientific publishing, and how they may play out over the coming decades.”

Topics include open access, open data, scientific publishing, and libraries.
Contributors include Declan Butler, Richard Van Noorden, Richard Monastersky, Jason Priem, and John Wilbanks.
