A UK open-access publishing platform would allow the academy to reclaim control of its knowledge and labour, says Steffen Böhm. Steffen Böhm is director of the Essex Sustainability Institute, University of Essex, and professor of management and sustainability at Essex Business School. He hopes that the UK will become  "a beacon of open-access publishing. By cutting out the parasitic publishing middle men, the academy could reclaim control of its knowledge, funding and labour."
