Nature has launched a special on what the financial crisis might mean for science and innovation. It already includes more than a dozen articles and will be continually updated. It’s all on free access.
If you want a great easy-to-understand 4-page overview, your first stop should be this feature — Science in the meltdown by lead writer, Mitch Waldrop, my colleague in DC — and an accompanying editorial — Danger and opportunity — both of which I’d a hand in.
To see a complete list of the articles, go to Special: Financial Crisis.
