Post SSRN?

Ever since SSRN announced its sale to Elsevier I’ve been musing post-SSRN. While SSRN has always been a commercial enterprise, re-investing profits into the business is quite a different kettle of fish to being part of Elsevier.

I’m currently exploring Zenodo hosted at the venerable CERN, and Econstor hosted at the Leibniz Information Centre for Economics.

Maybe we are slowly learning that we need to be in control of our infrastructure if open access is really going to mean something.
