You Tube Video on PLOS and Open Science

This short YouTube video by Dr. Siouxsie Wiles,  microbiologist at the University of Auckland, is a great introduction to PLOS (Public Library of Science) and the promise of open science.  While it seems fair to say that the open science movement can, at times, be naive about the value of scientific journals, this YouTube video provides a compelling motivation for the open science movement, and an inspirational example of open science in action.  It is about 10 minutes long.  To watch it, click here.
