QW 052712 “Virtual Viewpoint Discussion 0527”

Charity Group Encourages Free Access to Scientific Research


Discussion A
1) Do you agree that scientific research should be available to everybody for free? Why or why not?
Well, my initial thought is on who will pay the cost of publishing research data if all of the scientific research is available for free. It could be whether those free-of-charge SNSs supported by advertisers, or the tax money will be spent on managing the publication of research if it’s government-sponsored research. We’d take it for granted that it’s always best to obtain anything for free, but I cannot help wonder who will pay the cost of offering something available for free.

2) Can you think of some types of information that should not be made available to everybody on the Internet? Why should these not be published?
Any information that might invade people’s privacy, threat public security, and influence negatively on children and adolescent. The access of those kinds of information should be limited and under control because they can impair happiness and well-being of people involved.


Discussion B
3) Have you ever subscribed to any journal magazine or newspaper? If yes, what was it about? If no, have you ever thought about subscribing to one? Why or why not?
I’ve subscribed to The Japan Times, New York Times weekly, Newsweek, CNN English Express, usually magazines and newspapers related to English-learning. CNN English Express contributed significantly to developing my listening skills back then.

4) Would you say that the money people spend on buying or subscribing to journals is well-spent? Why or why not?
It may be safe to say that not all the journals subscribed are well-read by their subscribers. I’m talking about it from my own experiences. When novelty wears off, some people will stop reading delivered journals and leave the growing piles of journals untouched. Or even avid readers will read only their favorite articles or sections, not necessarily all the articles in journals. So come to think of it, subscription to journals and magazines can be “investment money never fully-returned”.
