Our assigned readings are up. We may add 1-2 other papers for your consideration, but there is plenty to get you going. Please consider how the current debates about publication — admittedly tilted in favor of open access, based on our assignments — affect your scientific career currently and in the near future. Be as specific as you can, please. Are the journals in which you intend to publish your research easily accessible? What is their publication model (access/copyright/etc)? Do they provide value to you, the author? Are they good for your academic community? Why?
Hope your break is great.
