Bloggers United for Open Access - Sharing is Caring!
Bloggers are read by thousands every day, unlike researcher’s articles which are read by far fewer.
Blogs are freely available to everyone. New research on the other hand, is mainly found in international journals that cost a fortune. Because of this, researchers and students in developing countries do not have access. They have to pay for research that has already been paid for. By the public, by you and me.
Open Access is free access to research. Free. Just like a website or blog. If scientists share their discoveries with each other, lives will be saved. It's that simple.
This is why research should be made as accessible as the latest fashion.
