Re: An example (email received today)
I know nothing about this topic.

However upon reading the email, the words below raised hair on the back of my neck.

quote:
What is more, an open access article stands more chances to be used and cited than does one behind subscription barriers of traditional publishing model. Therefore your article's impact will be improved once you become an OA author.

Really? Guaranteed improved impact just because of open access?


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

I would say here something that was heard from an ecclesiastic of the most eminent degree; ‘That the intention of the Holy Ghost is to teach us how one goes to heaven, not how the heaven goes.’ Galileo Galilei 1615.

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass

Re: How to Tell?
I don't really think that many people on the street would even try to look at a scientific journal anyway. Lots of people on the street think that National Geographic is a scientific journal. That won't change quickly.

I hear ya.

I remember some creationist ranting here about the fact that somebody without a doctoral degree had a letter published in Scientific American.

I also remember someone ranting that Scientific American was influential in keeping atheists in control of science.

(Now that I think about it, I am probably remembering two posts by a single person).
