Public Library of Science

I am a big "Google Scholar" user. For those who don't know, "Google Scholar" links to journal articles from scientific publications. The problem is, unless you are a subscriber, or want to pay a hefty fee, most of the time all you can get is an abstract from a study.

There is a website that I have found that is attempting to allow consumers to find scholarly scientific articles on the net. It is called the Public Library of Science. I have checked it out in a perfunctory way, and I think that the concept has potential.

Yes, if you listened to Talk of the Nation on NPR on Friday April 18 for Science Friday, you can hear all about the Public Library of Science and how it works and why it is free. The articles come out later than they are published in the official medical and science journals, but I believe that it is 6 months to a year later only. So, the articles are top notch and are available just a short period of time later than the academic people get them. NPR is available at NPR.org and podcasts of each show on NPR are available. Talk of the Nation is always on Science on Friday, but the other shows are great.
