The goal of this paper is to demonstrate that what is already making its way in several sectors on the Internet could be applied in a productive manner to science, obviously keeping in mind the characteristics and social rules which guide scientific activity and the behaviour of scholars. Thus, based on the technologies of recommendation and the industry of reuse, the paper proposes a scientific publishing model that goes beyond Open Access, promoting also an Open Reuse of identical articles by any electronic subscription journal.

Keywords: Open Access, Open Reuse, Technologies of Recommendation, Industry of Reuse, Sociology of Science, Digital Repositories, Innovation in Assembly, Web 2.0, Science 2.0, Public Sector Information
