In February of this year, the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the United States passed an open access policy for scientific articles. This means that all data from federally funded research will be free to the public twelve months after it has been published. For the first time in modern history, the latest discoveries and breakthroughs won’t be hidden behind a paywall. No longer will we have to shell out the price of four novels to get a copy of an article we’re interested in.
We are thrilled by this idea: free access to information is at the heart of Guru Magazine. But at the end of the day, facts aren’t everything, and most of us don’t find research papers a riveting read. Our mission at Guru continues: publishing articles and content that is genuinely engaging, and entertaining. We also love to offer a scientific slant, but a reliable one.
