New policy: don’t share coverage of academic research unless the research is open access

I understand and appreciate the author’s sentiment about not reporting on closed-access academic work. In my own case, I just try to avoid reading or citing non-OA work. Not because closed-source stuff isn’t good, but because I don’t want to be citing material that I can’t re-read when I leave grad school. I have incredibly large amounts of stuff to read: I’m not sure that spending time reading soon-to-be-locked-away-knowledge is the optimal use of my time.
