This is what University Presses need to become -- the formatter, keeper, and
distributor (with the university library) of the intellectual goods. If that
were to happen, funded of course by the university, then the university
could avoid paying twice (once to the researcher and twice to the publisher)
for intellectual property. The university would also save money in the long
term. I believe it will come to this model within the next five years.
