The EU pushes for making *all* science in Europe open access. Wham, take that, #copyright. This is progress. Fuck yeah.
@Qwxlea you're totally correct, sorry. also only the publicly funded science of the future, afaict.
@b3yond That's fucking great news. Free the knowledge!
@b3yond one step for science one step back for free speech.
@b3yond It is going to fuck over grad students to no end, FYI.
Open access journals charge to publish with them (even the non-profit ones have to cover their bills). This means that a lot of professors aren't going to bother publishing lower impact research, which screws over grad students who are desperate for more papers for their CV or resume.
