Scientific journal Nature is making its papers free to read

Articles on Nature.com will be made widely available to read and share in support of collaborative research.

Macmillan Science and Education, one of the leading publishing and technology companies in the world, today announces the launch of a groundbreaking publishing initiative that will make it easy for readers to share an unprecedented wealth of scientific knowledge instantly with researchers and scientists across the globe.

Subscribers to 49 journals on nature.com can now legitimately and conveniently share the full-text of articles of interest with colleagues who do not have a subscription via a shareable web link on nature.com. In addition, Macmillan Science and Education will take a lead on opening up public engagement with scientific knowledge to society at large by giving access to the same content to readers of 100 global media outlets and blogs.

Two initiatives are being introduced:

1. Subscribers to 49 journals on nature.com will be able to share a unique URL to a full text, read-only version of published scientific research with colleagues or collaborators in the most convenient way for them, e.g. via email and social media. Included are the world’s most cited scientific publication, Nature; the Nature family of journals and fifteen other quality science journals. This new initiative will be available to scientists and students at more than 6,000 universities and organizations worldwide, and serve the more 10 million monthly unique visitors to nature.com. This sharing is intended for personal, non-commercial use. To further aid collaboration, forthcoming annotation functionality will enable subscribers to share comments and highlighted text with their colleagues.

2. 100 media outlets and blogs across the globe that report on the findings of articles published on nature.com will be able to provide their own readers with a link to a full text, read-only view of the original scientific paper. Thousands of high-quality scientific papers will be available. Nature has published some of the leading scientific stories of our time, such as the Human Genome; the structure of DNA; Dolly the Sheep; the invention of the laser; the identification of the AIDS virus and the discovery of the hole in the ozone layer.

Common Sense

Common Sense is not a gift!
Common Sense is not a gift because you have to deal with everyone who doesn’t have it.

Common Sense

Common Sense is  not a gift because you have to deal with everyone who doesn’t have it.


Christopher Paolini

“Because you can’t argue with all the fools in the world. It’s easier to let them have their way, then trick them when they’re not paying attention.”


Voltaire

A Pocket Philosophical Dictionary

“Common sense is not so common.”


René Descartes

“Common sense is the most widely shared commodity in the world, for every man is convinced that he is well supplied with it.”


Robert G. Ingersoll

The Works of Robert G. Ingersoll, Vol. V

“Blasphemy is an epithet bestowed by superstition upon common sense.”


René Descartes

Discourse on Method

“Nothing is more fairly distributed than common sense: no one thinks he needs more of it than he already has.”


Paulo Coelho

Veronika Decides to Die

“A lot of people think something is right, and so that thing becomes right.”


Philip Dormer Stanhope

“Common sense (which, in truth, is very uncommon) is the best sense I know of: abide by it; it will counsel you best.”


Gertrude Stein

Selected Operas and Plays

“Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.”

Lyrics to I Feel Everything by WATERS

WATERS – I Feel Everything Lyrics

You can fool your friends,
But I know you better than that.
You found my brother’s gun
I think it’s just more fun, like that.

Oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.

Kiss me just to keep me close
I’ll call you anything you want me to
I just can’t wait to get away
To that only place where I feel everything.

CHORUS:
I feel everything. I feel everything.
I feel everything. I feel everything.

Oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.

Don’t give in on what they say
They can’t understand it at all
It ain’t yours to give away
And it’s not yours to take,
I don’t care what they say,
It’s just the only place
Where I feel everything.

CHORUS:
I feel everything. I feel everything.
I feel everything. I feel everything.

Oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.
Oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.

And it’s not yours take,
I don’t care what they say,
It’s just the only place
Where I feel everything.

CHORUS:
I feel everything. I feel everything.
I feel everything. I feel everything.

Oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.
Oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.
