The prices of Journals are ridiculous!

Discussion created by Jeremy Wright on May 26, 2009

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.
