LAST WEEK's Nature

Getting behind myself, I think. Last week's Nature, the issue for 19th June had these:

A piece on the financial state of the PLoS journals; - which are facing a financial crisis, according to Nature;

A piece reporting that a spending bill currently before the US House of Representatives has had an amendment proposed, whereby NIH funded researchers would be mandated to put their work in an open access repository. Currently they are only encouraged to, and most don't.

And a review of a book about malaria in Italy in the 20th century, which argues that there are lessons to be learnt about how to tackle malaria now.
