What's that sound? It's the credit crunch. Long term readers will know that I'm not one to stand by idly while the economy flounders and banks implode. Inspired by recent news that Thomson Scientific is suing Zotero, I've come up with a way to help scientists cope with the realities of the post-deprecession  world.
I've devised a new metric to analyse a person's publication record. It's the SCCI, Science Credit Crunch Index, a measure of the fraction of your papers that will not be available post-deprecession assuming that all of the companies/societies holding the copyright go down the tubes. In my case, it's a round 0.75. Any one interested in helping with a bailout?
 It's better than a depression - it's worse than a recession.
