As argued in Rothenberg and Bikson (1999), the term ‘authenticity’ encompasses two concepts: integrity and authentication. 9 The scholarly record must be authentic if it is to provide a sound basis for scholarly progress, historical accuracy and intellectual and legal accountability. Of the two aspects of authenticity, authentication may be the easier to ensure in the digital domain, since it can rely on the traditional basis of an unbroken chain of stewardship, optionally augmented by digital signature techniques.

BioMed Central, for example, charges €1,000 per article for most of its journals and PLoS charges €1,200 (European Commission 2007). Similarly, other publishers are beginning to offer openaccess options in traditional journals. However, thus far, the level of uptake of open access for hybrid journals is relatively low: typically in the range of 4 to 8 percent of the total number of papers published (interview with Nick Fowler 2007). Although open-access publishers generally have to supplement their funding with other sources of income such as advertising and donations, BioMed and PLoS believe that they will break even soon.
