    • 25. Some impact is hard to measure “Dear Public Library of Science people, I just listened to a mouse song on line… I do not have the funds to subscribe to the traditional science journals. Tomorrow my students will hear the same mouse song I listened to and I am sure they will be as enchanted and interested as I am. The idea of open access to original research papers is very exciting to someone in my position… I can assure you that the availability of research papers will benefit the future of scientific research by providing motivation and stimulation for millions of fledgling scientists. Sincerely, Science Teacher”
    • 26. The impact factor is… • a journal-based metric • proprietary • incomplete http://www.flickr.com/photos/m2w2/191545978/sizes/z/in/photostream/
