English abstract

In this paper, I show that the world of scholarly communication is resolutely shifting from a toll-access to an open-access publishing model, that there are many who are fraudulently corrupting this model for their own gain, and that the transition to open access will bring fundamental changes to scholarly societies' roles in the scholarly communication process, changes that will introduce new challenges and promising opportunities.
