I don't understand why peer-review journal should continue to exist! Longtime ago, all scientific and great discoveries came out without peer-reviewed journals! Did Mandel, Darwin, Einstein, Newton,...and so on, publish their research in peer-reviewed journals? So, why should we support the capitalist publishing policy to make them more and more rich? Publishing is becoming business issue, not to publish scientific results! I am an ardent supporter for the open publishing and eliminate the peer-reviewed policy! Knowledge should be free and available to everyone without constraints!
I can see how peer-review can be frustration. However, if it is done the right way it can improve your paper and your work. Unfortunately, sometimes competition and certain personalities can hinder this "intentionally positive process".
And I agree, publishing should not be a business issue.....
I LOVE the program papers for Mac. I have been using it for a couple years now and able to organize my pdfs, and, most importantly, find them when I need them. The only little drawback is that one cannot use it for citing. However, you can export the papers as references and import them into EndNote.
I was wondering if you have a favorite sequencing company? I am specifically looking for companies that do Sanger sequencing (for full 16s rDNA). However, there are so many companies out there that it is a bit overwhelming. So I thought I'll check what your opinions are. Please let me know if there is a company you trust. Thanks!
