#DE­PAR­TURE LOUNGE

Guru Magazine - - Contents -

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.

We hope you’ve en­joyed is­sue 12 and, as al­ways, would love to hear what you think of what we do. Feel free to send us an email at info@gu­ru­magazine.org and fol­low us on twit­ter (@ Gu­ruMag) and Face­book. If you want en­sure the fu­ture of the mag­a­zine, a great way to con­tinue to sup­port our mis­sion is by join­ing the Read­ers Panel! Please help us out by par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Panel sur­veys; the fu­ture of the mag­a­zine de­pends on it.

Is­sue 13 re­leased 1st Au­gust 2013!
