Comment on “Sensitivity of seaf oor bathymetry to climate-driven f uctuations in mid-ocean ridge magma supply” Peter Huybers, Charles Langmuir, Richard F. Katz, David Ferguson, Cristian Proistosescu, Suzanne Carbotte Olive et al. (Reports, 16 October 2015, p. 310) argue that ~10% fl uctuations in melt supply do not produce appreciable changes in ocean ridge bathymetry on time scales less than 100,000 years and thus cannot refl ect sea level forcing. Spectral analysis of bathymetry in a region… 
Response to Comment on “Sensitivity of seafloor bathymetry to climate-driven fluctuations in mid-ocean ridge magma supply”
Upon evaluating the overlap between tectonic and Milankovitch periodicities across spreading rates, it is reemphasized that fast-spreading ridges are the best potential recorders of a sea level signature in seafloor bathymetry.
Replacing “parachute science” with “global science” in ecology and conservation biology
Biodiversity remains relatively unknown and understudied in many parts of the developing world with significant information gaps, in stark contrast to many areas in the developed world, where
How open access is crucial to the future of science
A commentary published recently in The Journal of Wildlife Management argued that open access publication has strong negative implications for the future of science. Unfortunately, that commentary


Bottlenecks in the Open-Access System: Voices from Around the Globe
Abstract A level playing field is key for global participation in science and scholarship, particularly with regard to how scientific publications are financed and subsequently accessed. However,
Mapping the journal publishing landscape: how much do we know?
The sparse existing literature is surveyed, and original sources examined to provide further detail, and the quality advantage of nonprofit journals may be reducing, but nonprofit journals still predominate among the most highly cited journals.
Open Access and the Author-Pays Problem: Assuring Access for Readers and Authors in a Global Community of Scholars
This work states that an OA journal for readers may in reality be a closed-access journal for authors, and that publication charges associated with an ‘author-pays’ business model can constitute significant barriers for potential authors.
