David Ottina, writing in 2013 about the emergence of scholarly publishing standards & infrastructures like OJS, DOAJ, NLM-DTD, and SciELO 👇. My immediate, deeply insightful, reaction is to wonder whether we are now ready to empower larger scholars (directly or indirectly).
My snark aside, the article is still relevant:

"They are all international in scope and cross- institutional in support structure. For the most part, they have focussed on the interaction of technical and social systems and addressed infrastructural issues. They are self-organizing and self-authorizing, often with humble beginnings and limited institutional support. They were created to fill a specific need for a particular set of communities. They empower smaller projects and scholars directly."
