Open-access journals

Wired News

A promising trend - there are currently at least 1500 open access (i.e., FREE), peer-reviewed journals available, with hundreds added each month.

It makes me wonder if the economics of open source are fundamentally different than that of rival goods. If copying such goods is effectively cost-free, the question is not whether you could get everyone to produce, but whether altruists (at least, not selfish wealth-maximizers) occur in sufficient numbers, worldwide.

And whether they have skills.
