In putting together my last post I noticed something interesting (disturbing?) from the Cambridge Journals site. If you would like to purchase a PDF of the Parringtonia gracilis redescription paper I just mentioned it will cost you $45.00 U.S. The atrociousness of this has been discussed in detail at several other blogs most notably by the SV-POW guys. Anyhow, for those of you who don't want to (or can't afford to) shell out this kind of cash for a single article there is now another option available. You can rent the article instead for the low(er) price of $5.99 U.S.!!! You get 24 hour access to the article, which is probably enough to cram in a couple of readings if you don't really want to fully comprehend the paper. Also just think of the hard drive space you'll save if all of your PDFs 'disappeared' after a 24 hour period. Currently I'm very hard pressed to think of a reason why this would be attractive. I suppose if you simply wanted to download the article and print it for future use.... Anyone else able to present this in a positive light?
