Opening up the academic world

I truly hope this new Google Scholar service will increase the rate by which scientific results will be become more easily, and cheaper, availaible to the general public that funds it in the first place. One other, but related, inevitable consequence of these developments is a changing business (and revenue) model for the tradional publishers....

"Google Scholar is another reflection of changing habits in the academic world, said Mr. Sack of HighWire Press. In the past decade, students and researchers have begun to go to online search engines first."
