We need only 1 not 4000 journals

Aaron Ciechanover criticises profits of Nature publisher and backs mega-journal model according to a June 26, 2023 report at Times Higher Education

Speaking at the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting,  Aaron
Ciechanover, the Israeli biologist who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2004, took aim at the high cost of scientific publishing which, he argued, was linked to the importance attached by scientists to publishing in big-name journals. “Everyone wants to have a paper in Cell, Science or Nature, which is wrong – we are celebrating where you are published rather than what you have published,” explained Professor Ciechanover at the event in southern Germany.
