Thus far, the Web has had a disruptive impact on a range of industries, including academic publishing. But in many respects, it is business as usual; journal publishers control a significant portion of the market and charge significant fees for the content they provide, yet this content is produced, validated and consumed by the academic community, providing a perfect opportunity for disintermediation. Using practical-led sciences as a case study, this paper examines the hold journal publishers have on academic dissemination and how these factors may be exploited in encouraging disruptive innovations. Sourcing ideas from a range of literature, including game theory, knowledge management and collective behaviour, this paper goes on to propose some requirements from a system that might be used to encourage dissemination among scholars, before concluding on future work that may put some of these ideas to the test
