The newly released pledge No free view? No review! (not to be confused with the TCS4F pledge from the previous post) is a way for researchers to publicly express their preference for an open access publishing model.

TCS4F is an initiative by theoretical computer scientists who are concerned about that other major crisis of our time: climate change. We anticipate that the climate crisis will be a defining challenge of the decades to come, that it will require major changes at all levels of society to mitigate the harm that it will cause, and that researchers in theoretical computer science and in database theory, like all other actors, must be part of the solution and not…

As researchers, our job is to develop new knowledge and share it with the world. Currently, the main way to do this is research articles. Thus, we are all contributing to a vast corpus of scholarly literature, which contains millions of papers across decades of research in all domains of human knowledge.

The point of this article is to argue that this precious resource is not currently used to its full potential. The scientific corpus can only be navigated…
