Hold that thought. Nothing is free without a price.  I have noticed that many journal articles are easier to access online via the internet. This may seem like great news but I notice there is a bias in what information is free online. When I conduct my literature search, I notice that articles with positive results of a new drug are often freely available online, whereas articles with neutral or negative results are more difficult to access….. sometimes even from the same journal.  I wonder why?

How can anyone make informed decision when there is a bias in how information is made available to the public?

That’s my food for thought on a Monday morning!
