Did you know that profitable business scientific publishing is bad to science?

by Chris Black

Ghislaine Maxwell’s father and high-ranking Mossad agent, Ian Robert Maxwell, is the reason many scientific publications are pay walled today.

After World War 2, Maxwell used contacts in the Allied occupation authorities to go into business, becoming the British and US distributor for Springer Verlag, a publisher of scientific books.

As this venture expanded, he played a central and pivotal role in the remaking of academic publishing as a for-profit pay walled business that limited who had access to new literature. This gate-keeping model has put profit over knowledge for decades in a fashion tiresomely typical of his people.

Side note: because everything beyond the abstract is often pay walled (or, as with many publications on the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and Ivermectin, at risk of being retracted for political reasons), I prefer to directly upload a .pdf of any study I reference.
