No doubt Steve Jobs would have loved this...
90% of scientific journals = paywalls. Almost prevented @JackAndraka from discovering revolutionary new testing protocol. OPEN SCIENCE #medx

RT: OPEN SCIENCE. How many young scientists like @JackAndraka are thwarted from discovery by journal subscription rates? #medx @MightyCasey

+1000 "Together we can bring down one of the greatest road blocks in scientific research" says @jackandraka http://t.co/GvZV6ayRwBThe Medicine X core conference kicked off yesterday, and today’s events has just begun with a keynote speech from Maryland high school student Jack Andraka. At age 15, Andraka created a novel paper sensor that detects pancreatic, ovarian and lung cancer in five minutes and costs a mere three cents. Andraka’s outstanding talk, titled "On curiosity, open source research, and the new scientist," has just made me cry... tears of hope - hope that things will change... For now, 90% of scientific journals online have paywalls... Read about Jack Andraka at MedicineX Stanford here and here.
