Science geeks might want to check out PloS Biology, an "open access" science journal.

 

All works published in the PLoS Biology are open access. Everything is immediately available without cost to anyone, anywhere ? to read, download, redistribute, include in databases, and otherwise use ? subject only to the condition that the original authorship is properly attributed. Copyright is retained by the author.

 

PLoS Biology features works of exceptional significance in all areas of biological science, from molecules to ecosystems, including works at the interface with other disciplines, such as chemistry, medicine, and mathematics.

 

In addition to research articles they things like book reviews, essays and primers on subjects like comparative genomics.

It's ironic that you'd post this today as earlier I was trying to track down a journal paper from 1995. The journal is called "Cognitive Development" and I figured that being so old it would be ~$5 to buy the paper. ScienceDirect.com has C.D. but they want $30 to download an 8 year old paper!!

 

Journals are expensive enough new, but that's outrageous...where the hell is that money going?
