Public Library of Science: Open Access The Case for Open Access Open Access (OA) stands for unrestricted access and unrestricted reuse. Here’s why that matters. Publications - Journals by Subject Ocean Science (OS) is an international open access journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research on all aspects of ocean science, experimental, theoretical and laboratory. OS covers the fields ocean physics, ocean chemistry, biological oceanography, air-sea interactions, ocean models (physical, chemical, biological and biochemical), coastal and shelf edge processes, and paleoceanography.

Hundredth monkey effect The hundredth monkey effect is a studied phenomenon[1] in which a new behavior or idea is claimed to spread rapidly by unexplained, even supernatural, means from one group to all related groups once a critical number of members of one group exhibit the new behavior or acknowledge the new idea. The theory behind this phenomenon originated with Lawrence Blair and Lyall Watson in the mid-to-late 1970s, who claimed that it was the observation of Japanese scientists. One of the primary factors in the promulgation of the story is that many authors quote secondary, tertiary or post-tertiary sources who have themselves misrepresented the original observations.[1]

Journals PLOS publishes seven peer-reviewed open-access journals. The journals vary in their selectivity and contain differing amounts of commentary articles from opinion leaders in a variety of scientific disciplines.The journals are editorially independent. They include PLOS ONE, which publishes all rigorous science across the full range of life and health sciences; the community journals (PLOS Genetics, PLOS Computational Biology, PLOS Pathogens, and PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases); and our flagship journals, PLOS Medicine and PLOS Biology, highly selective journals publishing fewer than 10% of submissions along with a range of informative and influential non-research content. You can search the journals for specific articles here and you can sign up for e-mail Content Alerts for all our journals here. We encourage authors to consider carefully each journal’s scope before submission in order to minimize delays in the review process.

Fairy Tales Fairy tales, fables, myths and folk tales from around the world. Myths And Folk-Tales Of The Russians, Western Slavs, And Magyars | by Jeremiah Curtin A Few tens of years ago it was all-important to understand and explain the brotherhood and blood-bond of Aryan nations, and their relation to the Semitic race; to discover and set forth the meaning of that which in mental work, historic strivings, and spiritual ideals ties the historic nations to one another. At the present time this work is done, if not completely, at least measurably well, and a new work awaits us, to demonstrate that there is a higher and a mightier bond, - the relationship of created things with one another, and their inseverable connection with That which some men reverence as God, but which other men call the Unknowable, the Unseen. Fairy Tales Of The Slav Peasants And Herdsmen | by Aleksander Borejko Chodzko, Emily J. Harding
