Open access is revolutionizing science, and it's a growing research market online (Deutsche-Welle, 5/07/14)
Posted by Orrin Judd at May 9, 2014 5:52 PMMore and more scientists are publishing their results online. And as a result, it's becoming easier to link to new knowledge. A Berlin-based platform called ScienceOpen wants to tap into that."It's really important for me that everyone gets immediate access to the wonderful work that scientists do," says Stephanie Dawson. The Yale-educated biologist is the managing director for ScienceOpen, a research platform that went live this week."Access to this research is like a human right," Dawson told DW. "After all, it's all research funded with taxpayers' money."
