- It would be great if more scientific information (research, studies etc.) is made available to non-students or non-academia, and preferably not behind a big whopping pay-wall.Jul 18, 2011

- I understand the business model and the need for it, but make it a one-access portal structure for a small fee. So most people can access it.Jul 18, 2011
