Links Entry: Following the Dale Askey case

June 22, 2013

I have taken an interest in the lawsuit against Dale Askey. Mr Askey is an academic librarian. In his blog, he discussed predatory publishers that take advantage of the open-access publishing framework, which taints the framework for quality open-access publishers. Mr Askey named one of the publishers from a list of predatory publishers. This publisher is now suing Mr Askey for over $4 million dollars. This lawsuit threatens to inhibit academic freedom and the historic function of librarians providing quality and non-biased evaluation of resources.
