Nature believes (now) in free access and social media
According a recent press release, “All content hosted on the Nature News site (www.nature.com/news) is now freely available. This includes online news articles, and news and news features articles published in Nature“.
“Nature Publishing Group (NPG) has made this change so that Nature’s news content can be disseminated and discussed as widely as possible, as we develop nature.com as the hub for quality science news and comment. With the rise of social media such as Twitter, Facebook and our own Connotea and Nature Network, we’d like to ensure that discussions about our news and comment can include an accessible link to the article“.
