Preprint posting is the right thing to do for science and society. It enables us to share our results earlier, speeding up the pace of science. It also enables us to catch errors earlier, minimising the risk of alerting the world to our findings (through a high-impact publication) before the science is solid. Importantly, preprints ensure long-term open access to our results for scientists and for the public. Preprints can be rapidly posted for f...

"We need to look ahead. Europe was founded on debt forgiveness and investment in the future. Not on the idea of endless penance."
In a forceful interview with German newspaper Die Zeit, the star economist Thomas Piketty calls for a major conference o…
