Prosser on Davis

I don't agree with David Prosser that Phil Davis is intent upon 
turning any metric on Open Access against itself.  Davis is hard 
on all metrics, not just OA.  See his many posts on the Scholarly 
Kitchen which touch on a range of issues where metrics are a 
factor.  These are not all OA discussions.

I don't happen to agree with Davis's overall perspective (see 
http://bit.ly/fKzObA) in that I am skeptical about the metrics 
game regardless of who plays it.  But I don't see any reason to 
doubt Davis's integrity in these matters.  Let's talk about what 
Davis says, not about him.
