Efficience et économie d'échelle. Une étude sur l'édition de revues en libre accès

Abstract : The article examines the size distribution of open access (OA) journal publishers. The analysis uses information on open access journals from the DOAJ Directory and information on scientific journals from the Ulrichsweb. There are fewer OA journals and publishers than for the traditional model, but their numbers are growing faster. Compared to traditional publishing, OA publishing is less concentrated, with fewer major publishers and fewer journals published by major publishers. Economically speaking, the " fragmented " situation disadvantages OA publishing. The sharing of editorial production is one of the possible developments. Commercialization with increased concentration is another.
