Congress Unplugged! Set the default to Open – There is a growing movement to change the lack of taxpayer’s access to scientific research by supporting policies that require all published results to be made available to the public, free, online as soon as possible.

Scientists don’t get paid to rediscover yesterday’s discoveries. Nowadays most of them get paid for adding to the ever-growing pile of the world’s unread scientific literature. There is a growing disconnect between the emphasis placed on scientific publication, as the main way forward in a scientist’s career, and the delivery of the knowledge that they have generated to society. Indeed it sometimes seems to me that scientists are rewarded for publishing science and punished for publicising it.
