The time has come for some reflection on the status and position of independently published accredited scientific journals. I have come to this conclusion after recently attending an Academy of Science of South Africa Regional Workshop on Open Source Publishing. At this workshop, the great difficulties faced by editors of independent journal to sustain their journals within the current policy framework became clear. Around the same time, the SACOMM Publication Committee was in the process of formulating a draft statement for its members on what are deemed to be the perceived limitations of the SAPSE accreditation process (May, 2011).
