PLoS One: Dinosaur Scoop

http://thebeagleproject.blogspot.com/2007/11/open-access-science-publishing-lands.html

Here’s a glass of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon to PLoS ONE, Sereno et al and their decision to reveal Nigersaurus taqueti in an open access journal. I don’t work as a professional scientist, but I’m a scientifically literate cheerleader from the sidelines (and I’m not the only one), and it’s fantastic for me to be able to read this stuff: some of it is above my pay grade, but with a bit of reading around I can understand it all, and even without understanding every word I can relish the work. The more science is freely available the more interested minds might be able understand what science does and what science means.
