Weird how when you're doing something that you love, that provides valuable information, and that's valuable to humanity, you're made to feel guilty about getting paid for it, huh? I'm sure none of our trade and self-publishing folks on here can relate (jk lol). Former biophysicist and current data scientist Jahed Momand joins us to talk about power dynamics in scientific publishing, how scientists are at the mercy of a multi-billion dollar industry with really really high profit margins, and what options we might have to change the way things currently are. Is it possible to have a world where researchers and creators get compensated? Where normal people can afford to access scientific research? Maybe?
