Technically not *all*science (obviously):

> The idea is to open up publicly funded research to everyone

Just the science that has already been bought and paid for. Still Wham!

Scientific journals are a scam.

#openAccess

@Qwxlea you're totally correct, sorry. also only the publicly funded science of the future, afaict.

@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.
