RE: Open Access and For-Pay Access (to the same IR materials)

According to the shorter OED, sedition is inciting people to overthrow
constituted authority while treason is rolling up your sleeves and doing
it yourself.  As information workers we presumably lean towards the
former, however it might present itself.

Open Access means sloppy publications?

"The impact factors of nearly 200 open-access journals are similar to
those of traditional journals in the same fields, according to a recent
Thomson ISI report. The 58 open-access medical journals that receive
impact factors fell, on average, at the 40th percentile of all medical
journals, with all but 11 ranking higher than the 10th percentile. For
life sciences journals, the 37 open-access journals were ranked, on
average, at the 39th percentile."


Open Access is treasonous?
Does the Attorney General know this?
