About Bleedin' Time

So it looks like the 29 BILLION dollars' worth of research funded by the NIH will finally be open access to the public that paid for it in the first place...

The Washington Post covers this nicely so I won't go into too much detail, but long story short, we pay taxes, government funds research, research gets published in journal, journal costs $500 a year if you want to read the results.
