Thanks for the pointer to an amazing story.

It is a prime example of how politics and economics cannot help but be entangled in our quest for knowledge !

I must sift through many journal articles every day, everything from physics to microbiology, and Elsevier publishes a lot of them. Perhaps Elsevier will let us start a journal!

LOL, Mingma! Yes, I love both physics and mountaineering. I see that you know/work in Sikkim. I was there once, in 1991, but unfortunately not for long enough to do any tramping, since the permit was only for 15 days and heavily restricted. A beautiful place. Anyway, welcome to AF.

Good idea, Louise! What shall we call the journal?
