I found it interesting because I see money as such a limiting factor on scientific research as well as the publication process that is talked about in this article. People are getting very creative with solutions to making Science Paper Publication the best it can be, but I can't help imagine what it would be like if society didn't use money or a barter system. Would a marketing strategy replace a revenue strategy to find the articles with the most impact?
