Remember Aaron Schwartz. He died for those papers.

His name was Swartz, and he died from bipolar disorder. Thinking you can change the whole world by a brazen crime is classic manic thinking, and killing yourself when the police catch you is classic depressive thinking.

I always cited my research based on the relevance I found in the abstract.

I never paid :)

I mean like, we all do that yeah? :) :)

JJ -- always review the methods of research :)

LOL My department paid for anything I needed, though the school already had subscriptions to most everything I needed. Err... I attended a pretty famous and good school.

I'd do some research and publishing while in the private sector, and I would just get a library card for the local university and print or save stuff from there. Remember floppy disks? So many of those...

I think open publishing is the ethical thing to do in our modern society.
