We had a discussion about Scholastica over at Hacker News. Please promote it to support us as a group that are doing our part to remedy the problems that scholars are raising about the academic publishing industry.
Just wanted to give you an update on what's going on with Team Scholastica. We're really happy to have launched last Thursday. 362 days after the first code was written, we were finally able to share our baby with the world.
No one is paying us to create Scholastica. We're making it because we think that there are huge problems with the academic publishing industry. And of course, we've taken it upon ourselves to provide solutions to the problems we've found.
