There is an audio with Martin Weller, the author of the above book, here. It covers the open access debate and the new forms of publishing that are now available for communicating research and ideas.

I would also be about more hopeful that people might find ways to be innovative within journals. This might be overly optimistic, but we don’t want creativity to be out on the margins.
