The Future(s) of Open Science | by Philip Mirowski

The Future(s) of Open Science
by Philip Mirowski, Social Studies of Science, 48(2),  171–203.

Abstract: Almost everyone is enthusiastic that 'open science' is the wave of the future. Yet when one looks seriously at the flaws in modern science that the movement proposes to remedy, the prospect for improvement in at least four areas are unimpressive. This suggests that the agenda is effectively to re-engineer science along the lines of platform capitalism, under the misleading banner of opening up science to the masses. 
Keywords: neoliberal science, open science, platform capitalism, radical collaboration, science and democracy
