The March for Science is back โ€” and here's what to expect

lkfitz's bookmarks 2018-04-13

Summary:

"Participants in the United States will march in Washington DC and more than 120 other cities to call on Congress to protect government funding for basic research and environmental programmes, and to ensure that appointees to government science posts have relevant expertise. Other key issues are open access to scientific papers that describe research funded by government grants, as well as the protection of data privacy and net neutrality, which the US Federal Communications Commission plans to end by allowing Internet-service providers to block particular websites, Grover says."
