#Bioscience brings in the new year with #OpenAccess

BioScience, the monthly semi-glam ecology magazine/journal, recently switched publishers. To celebrate this and draw in readers, they're going open access through February 2014.

"The entire archive and current content of BioScience, the monthly journal of the American Institute of Biological Sciences, are now open access for a limited time on the servers of its new publisher, Oxford University Press:

Users can access the entire archive of BioScience for free until the end of February 2014.

  1. Hi Nate-
    I just skimmed your blog/website and appreciate your expertise in ecosystem restoration. As an OSU Master Naturalist student, I'm grappling to understand what legislation currently in the House and Senate will mean for forests here in Oregon. ( Bills: House 1525 Healthy Forests for Healthy Communities; and S. 1784 Oregon & California Land Grant Act of 2013) S.1784 promotes variable retention harvests. I will appreciate your thoughts... Is this a good practice? Why or why not? How does it compare with past harvest practice? Thank you- Jane ( my blog- )
