Often questions can be speculative and many have been discussed in print or preprint elsewhere.
Should we make a list of such sources here on the meta for easy reference to help improve questions and answers? (For a Big List is probably not appropriate on the main site itself seeing how it's not really a concrete Q & A object.)
If yes, I'll start with an interesting more or less known one http://www.math.cmu.edu/~wn0g/future%20of%20sc.pub.pdf Especially since nowadays years later in fact many major writer has complete preprints of their books and papers (and those of others) on their university website.
Then of course http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org/boai-10-recommendations
