John Ionnanides

For those of you interested in meta-analysis, the Atlantic has an interesting article on John Ioannidis (needs subscription I think?). I've written about him previously and his paper "Why Most Published Research Results are False". This article gives more color about him and his research group.

On a related note, you can now get my article on meta-analysis of interfuel substitution for free at Journal of Economic Surveys. This seems an odd publication model to me. Why give away the paper for free before assigning it a journal issue and page numbers and then put it behind the paywall? The New York Times used to follow a similar online model where archived material cost money but the current issue was free online. But in that case people looking for old articles wanted very specific information and were probably more willing to pay for it than someone looking for current news who could just go to another website.
