Science “Sting”and the boomerang

Posted: October 29, 2013 in Neuroscience

Weeks ago John Bohannon authored Who’s Afraid of Peer Review?, an article published in Science. This article questioned the model of open access. In reality the article address the issue related to the predatory Open Access but do not stand neither as a supporter for Open Access in general.

Here below I list some articles and posts that I have found really interesting about the topic.
