Correction to B.U. Asperger's Comment

Posted Oct 23 2008 2:10pm

Lorraine Wolf, Ph.D., is the Clinical Director of Disability Services at Boston University.  She sent me a message recently alerting me to an error in a previous blog entry about special programs for individuals with Asperger's at her school.  Lorraine informed me that the program that has special charges for summer workshops and additional staff support are not pegged specifically for individuals with Asperger's, but instead are available for all students with disabilities.  She added that while there are specific programs for individuals with Asperger's, they are offered at no additional cost. 

I had retrieved that information from a "paper/text" version of the Chronicle of Higher Education, which does not make articles available for free on the web.  My comment to the Chronicle:  By insisting on high cost subscriptions for web access to your articles, you run the risk of trivializing this information.  If bloggers and others can't link to full text articles from your journal, these articles will simply fall out of the historical record.  I understand the Chronicle's need to make money by subscription, but after a month or two, all articles should be internet accessible at no cost so as to make a real contribution to the literature.
