Journal of Markets & Morality Case study

Those of you who are familiar with the Journal of Markets & Morality, the peer-reviewed academic publication of the Acton Institute, may have noticed the transition of the journal over the last year to restricted subscriber-only access to current issues. The decision to restrict access with a “moving wall” of the two most recent issues was made following a study I did, in my capacity as associate editor of the journal, about the current landscape of scholarly publishing.

This study appears in the most recent issue of the Journal of Scholarly Publishing, “Scholarship at the Crossroads: The Journal of Markets & Morality Case Study.” JSP has been generous enough to post the text of the article online.

You can receive immediate access to the current issues of the journal, including a controversy by Derek S. Jeffreys and Robert P. Kraynak over the influence of Kant on Christian theology and the English text of the Genovese Sermon by Albertanus of Brescia, by becoming a subscriber to the Journal of Markets & Morality. Archived issues of the journal remain freely accessible.
