Abstract: The publishing system plays a fundamental role in science, inasmuch as scientific findings are proclaimed and evaluated through scholarly journals. Yet, the scientific publishing system is engaged in multiple controversies: the problem of open accessibility, the justification of retaining the authority to determine the relevance of scientific works, and the lucrative aspect of private publishers are only some of them. This public debate aimed at discussing, with the help of experts from the field, some of the most promising and heatedly debated alternatives to the current publishing system, which might widely reshape the methods of academic publishing in the coming years.
