  1. They gave it a few months? I’m sure all the things you mentioned Jevon are in play, but the biggest factor is time. Transformation of something as old and traditional as academic publishing is going to take time. Throwing something against the wall and seeing if it sticks is not how innovation happens.

    Sounds to me like Nature had planned ahead for failure. “We tried that… it didn’t work.”

  2. That’s a good point, and there is no reason to assume that this is the kind of thing you “get right” the first time anyway.
