Forensics: The battle of open access for scientific research papers. UCLA get slapped by mega publisher Elsevier.

The publisher spans the world for science, medicine and some things forensics. It has one open access (i.e. free) journal about forensics. Good for them.  This story covers the larger issue of  corporate profiteering (over charging) for information that is derived from grant-funded projects which do not self-publish. Maybe Elsevier needs more competition.
