anonion: US$30 FOR ONE FRIGGING ARTICLE YOU HAVE TO BE JOKING anonion: didn't some guy INVENT the WWW to make it easy to share and access academic information? anonion: ok, smallish-run journals are expensive .. but $1200 for one year == $100 for one issue == like $5-$10 per article .. then discount for online access vs hardcopy delivered ... == NOT FUCKING THIRTY FUCKING DOLLARS anonion: I would pay US$5 just to access any good journal article that I need anonion: but I will not eat green eggs and ham. anonion: this way, I will just make a list, and go into town and read them at the library when I have enough to make the trip worthwhile. You lose. anonion: readers in remote locations lose. anonion: society loses. science fails. score == 0.
