The response to this website has been very overwhelming. Again, I want to thank everyone who has written in. At one point I was keeping a spreadsheet with who I had responded to, but even that got messy and an unwieldy. But if you wrote in, and you know who you are, thank you.
I know many of you sent website links or have asked me to post surveys. I only want to post academically peer reviewed material (at this point).
I believe if I continue to update this blog eventually some personal opinion will fall through. If anything through making this website and searching for answers I found that if anything I was frustrated with the access of academic resources available to someone who is not in academia. Which leads me to say...
eScholarship and UCSF's open access policy!
Therefore, one link I am going to celebrate is eScholarship, started through the University of California. Here you may find many academic articles free for public reading. What is really exciting is that the University of California, San Francisco's academic senate recently voted in favor of allowing all of their research papers to be public and free to access. According to the press release: "The unanimous vote of the faculty senate makes UCSF the largest scientific institution in the nation to adopt an open-access policy and among the first public universities to do so."
