Platforms or Pipelines? Where is the Value in Scholarly Communications? Publishers cannot take their role for granted. New platforms are emerging that may replace old workflows, lifting them away from publishers large and small. As well as funders, technology companies and governments starting to control parts of the scholarly communication network, large commercial players are also now operating parts of the pipeline. Is this well-overdue innovation to support the needs of researchers or should we worry about how this emerging infrastructure will endure the passing of time and not become a moment of enthusiasm by a few well-funded organisations?
