Title: Mathematical articles and bottled water
Author: Burdzy, Krzysztof
Abstract: The system for publishing mathematical articles should be reformed and the new system should resemble, on the economic side, the bottled water industry. My main theses are: (i) the results of the mathematical research should be available to the public just like tap water, (ii) the role of the commercial (and non-commercial) publishers should be to sell an upgraded version of the product ("bottled water"), and (iii) only a coordinated action of big and powerful institutions (i.e., universities and the government) can bring about the change to the system.
Description: Letter to the editor.
