Submission + - The Secret Half-Lives of Scientific Papers (sciencemag.org)

sciencehabit writes: Scholarly papers can have relatively long “half-lives,” finds a survey released yesterday by a U.S.-based association of publishers. More than one-half of the total downloads of the articles covered by the survey took place more than 2 years after publication, while in some fields it took more than 4 years for a paper to hit its half-life. The findings come as the U.S. government, and other governments around the world, attempt to establish policies and deadlines for making government-funded research published in private journals freely available to the public.
