咏开放获取的打油诗

武夷山(译)

出生于匈牙利、现任教于加拿大的认知科学家Stevan Harnad教授是开放获取(OA)运动的领袖人物之一,是一个影响力很大的OA论坛的长期坛主。他111日发表了一首诙谐的打油诗,概括了反对OA人士的各种主张。我试译如下:

我常想:OA更像雨衣科学,

而不像火箭科学。

其基本想法超级简单:

现在这个时代什么都要互联,

你的科研影响力正在衰减,

赶快让论文上网,供人们免费查看!

这个道理就像下述例子那么浅显,

可是二十年来,对OA的响应实在迟缓:

瞧啊,孩子,马上就要下雨,

该披上雨衣……

OA不可能派(以下简称“不成”):这是违反规律的――

OA不合适派(以下简称“不愿”):我没有看见乌云有多密。

不成:品牌受到威胁――

不愿:我淋湿了才痛快。

不成:挑哪件雨衣穿?

不愿:我的钱包要变扁。

不成:雨衣也会穿成破褂――

不愿:旱灾的风险在加大。
不成:OA添了太多的麻烦――

不愿:下雨对您是好事一件。

不成:我读不懂那么多说明――

不愿:我需要更便宜的药品。
不成:标准遭到威胁――

不愿:风险危及我们的行业。

不成:这是气象员的需要――

不愿:雨实在是太大了。

不成:天气看来不妙――

不愿:让我们等待天空盾牌生效。

不成:树儿也需要好好准备――

不愿:否则甘霖不给它们恩惠。

不成:树木没有签标――

不愿:需要天气报告。

不成:我们的职业生涯面临危险――

不愿:抢了人家药剂师的饭碗。

不成:搞不好会脱水――

不愿:怎么样我也不做第一个替死鬼。

不成:穿哪一件才安全?

不愿:还是等天气自己改变。

不成:雨衣开始破损――

不愿:扣掉医生的薪金。

不成:雨伞也坏了――

不愿:做父母的太过分了。

不成:全球变干――

不愿:破坏了大气圈。

不成:质量没有保证――

不愿:天气报告谎报天情。

不成:有问题的雨衣统统召回――

不愿:雨衣上没有一滴水。

不成:这几个摁扣我扣不上――

不愿:把其他人擦干了没商量。

不成:老天爷该着我们湿透――

不愿:干燥程度还不够!

博主:以上每一句话都代表了一种对OA的反对态度或消极态度,而且,每种观点都有文献出处。这就更难翻译了。下面是打油诗原文,哪位发现我的理解或翻译有问题,请不吝赐教。

附:原文

I've often reflected that OA is a lot closer to raincoat science than
rocket science.

The essential message is super-simple:

It's the online age
You're losing research impact...
Make it free online

About as deep and complex as the following -- and yet, for two
decades, the response has been Zeno's Paralysis:
