U.S. Policy Restricts Scientific Publishing by Researchers in Countries Under Trade Embargo

U.S. Policy Restricts Scientific Publishing by Researchers in Countries Under Trade Embargo
Five countries are under current U.S. trade embargos: Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, and Sudan. Following investigations by the IEEE a couple of weeks ago, it turns out that these embargos include academic 'services' such as the editing of scientific papers. The U.S. government decision has embroiled the organization and raised concerns among other international organizations that they, too, will be subject to the same restrictions. More...

The Potential of Personal Publishing in Education II: How’s It Going & What’s Working?
