Publish then filter model
I think it was Thesis Whisperer that pushed this one into my twitter-stream. Instead of the publishing model (where these days lots of money goes to publishers and gatekeepers for services like typesetting that can easily be done good enough on Word) , just self-publish, and then the rest of the community can comment and filter. From David Gauntlett.
Well, maybe won’t happen quite yet for everyting, but Arxive is quite active, from what I understand.
