English abstract

Conclusions of the breakout session "Non-commercial journals: the role of the scientific societies". A wide-ranging discussion led to the conclusion that `non-commercial’ indicates primarily a low-cost e-publishing activity. The publishers are academic / research organizations, or low-cost commercial publishers acting on their behalf. Publication was viewed as an integral part of the research effort, and within this context, ‘hidden-cost’ publishing activities carried out by academic organizations were regarded as admissible.
