Randy Schekman: Don’t put science ‘behind a paywall’

June 20, 2019

“Scientific research shouldn’t sit behind a paywall,” writes UC Berkeley professor Randy Schekman in a new op-ed in Scientific American. Schekman, a professor of cell and developmental biology who won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2013, says discovery and research shouldn’t be inaccessible to those that need it—doctors, university scientists, for example — especially when the taxpayers fund the research.
