    All that universities need to do is to publish their academics' work for free on their own university website (costs nothing). They could also have a rule that their academics would only cite papers published the same way (plus open access for an interim period). Elsevier then goes to the wall and everyone else is happy.

    There would be no problem about grading quality. The websites can have comments fields as PLOSOne does and if your paper gets a comment 'good for a Nobel, best wishes Albert Einstein' ' then you get 100 pips on the score sheet.

    Sci-hub has been the major factor in that availability :D
