Free articles from Wetlands
Perhaps coincidentally, a few days ago I received an email from Springer (above), advertising their new promotion, giving away the five most downloaded articles in the journal Wetlands. Perhaps this is PR in response to the RWA, or maybe it's just the old D.A.R.E stereotypical drug peddler whose "first hit is free..." Either way, for those individuals lacking library access, this allows open access to a few of the more popular papers in the history of the journal (as might emailing individual authors for a copy of their work...). I suppose the public might as well take advantage of Springer's, um, charity(?) and gain exposure to one of the better ecosystem-based journals that I've come across.
If you have some money to spend and want more than five articles a month, free online access to Wetlands is provided with some memberships to the Society of Wetland Scientists and reduced rate print subscriptions are available.
*Update 27 MAR 2012: Ecological Engineering, is now offering free access to their top-25 articles!
