Get a load of this conference paper from 30 years ago, it is so ZING! on academic journals:

@hugh what a legend in 1989! That was when the commercial takeover by Pergamon and its ilk had barely begun.

@ben_hr imagine if scientific publishing had just moved to Bulletin Boards :oa:

@alissa I want to live in the alternative universe where scientific publishing moved to open access bulletin boards funded by national governments.

@hugh I feel like Trove really missed a trick here

@hugh are these the papers CAVAL scanned for VALA?

@saera hmm oh yeah I forgot CAVAL did them. Yes.

@saera and now they are still sitting in a Google Drive...

@hugh we should OCR it for next. because I think that wasn't part of the deal. but it should be easy to do.
