A reflection upon Culturico’s interview with Professor Randy Schekman about the growing open-access movement in the biological sciences, and what it means for the future of scientific publishing.
Alex is an Anglo-Italian with a profound love for his spiritual home of the Golfo dei Poeti. Despite most people thinking he was a ‘humanities’ person at school in Cambridge, he walked into UCL one day by mistake and, following capture, is now on the verge of obtaining a PhD in molecular neuroscience. Now freed again, he plans to move into scientific writing. He will use this blog to write about his many cultural and philosophical interests, which means there will eventually be one about cricket.
