Full Hyperlinked version:

SUMMARY: Leo Waaijers suggests in Ariadne that funder OA mandates
impose "unfair conditions" on authors because there are not enough
Gold OA journals to publish in. So instead, funders should fund
research on alternative "non-proprietary peer review" services. This
is based on a misunderstanding of OA mandates (which are for author
self-archiving of the final peer-reviewed drafts of articles published
in peer-reviewed non-OA journals, i.e., Green OA, not Gold OA) as well
as a misunderstanding of peer review, which needs to be neither
reformed, replaced nor redirected: existing peer-reviewed articles
need merely to be self-archived.
