This month I tackled a few arguments that frustrate me. The first is arguing that signing peer reviews is risky for early career researchers, so we shouldn't have fully open peer review. Posted at Absolutely Maybe, Signing critical peer reviews & the fear of retaliation: what should we do?

The second is the argument that author processing charges aren't a big barrier to open access publishing, because most open access journals don't have them: A Reality Check on Author Access to Open Access Publishing.
