Having to pay 30 dollars for 48 hours of online access to ACS journals is ridiculous. I am a chemical engineering major who loves to read all about what new research there is, but I am unable to access the most interesting papers because like so many other college students out there, I am essentially poor. What I propose is that for members there be a certain allotted amount of journals that we can access for free online. For student affiliates I should think that five should suffice and then for the higher paying members the number of free journals increases. I hope that someday this will happen because its disappointing that I cannot read about that which I am most interested in.
