Recently, I read an interview with Michael Eisen.
One of things he said that really struck me as important was that scholarly journals are way to expensive to subscribe too.
I believe the idea he was getting at was that scientists generally don’t have access to cutting edge data.
Michael suggested that journals be free and published online.
This is a great idea.
Could you imagine what it would be like if scientists had access to all of the cutting edge reports, experimental data, etc. ?
This could push science forward at a much faster rate and it could also help non scientists keep up on the latest information and ideas too.
Great idea Michael! Keep pushing forward on that one, I think it is going to help people a lot.
