English abstract

The rise of the prices of scientific journals, often called the "journals crisis", has become a concrete threat for the free circulation of scientific communication. The paper examines the most significative experiences and some criticism in the fields of scholarly communication.

Italian abstract

Le comunità accademiche e di ricerca sono da tempo insoddisfatte del modello tradizionale della comunicazione scientifica ed è molto diffusa l’opinione che a medio termine l’attuale sistema sia insostenibile. Da un lato, infatti, le biblioteche accademiche e di ricerca, che sono il mercato principale per le riviste scientifiche, non sono più in grado di affrontare la costante crescita dei prezzi degli abbonamenti, dall’altro il sistema che si sta affermando sembra non rispondere alle diffuse aspettative di un ampio accesso, a costi ridotti. Nell'articolo vengono esaminate alcune delle esperienze più significative; vengono successivamente illustrati alcuni nodi problematici sorti all’interno degli emergenti paradigmi nella scholarly communication.
