Thursday, February 22, 2007 4:31 PM The arcane publishing practices of the academic world

When I first signed up for my masters degree, I expected to find a much more progressive culture of open access. Unfortunately it was much the opposite. Most of the academic research do they charge a fee, they charge very large fees. It's unfortunate, but North American Universities take this for granted.

Until reading Mako's posts, I did not realize how much this practice affected me. I feel that it played a large role in my decision to not to further pursue a Doctorate.
