“Academics will learn that putting data online is not enough; the work should be carefully documented if allegations of impropriety are to be avoided. And the FT will sell a lot of copies of today’s paper, demonstrating that careful data analysis can be good for business.” – http://ift.tt/1t5Hcv0

“Elsevier, though? You can’t find a gaffe too big for them to try on. Jack up journal prices so high that even the best-endowed university in the country can’t afford them? Check. Publish fake journals that turn out to have been sponsored by pharmaceutical companies? Check. Buy up the start-ups that threaten your business model and use all the data that was freely submitted by its users for your own ends? Oh, check, check, check.” – http://ift.tt/1ci7xwF
