Hi guys,

For the first time I have a publication in my list of contribution.
But, even if I contribute (my graphic card in fact) I can't read it, I have to buy it.
Can it be possible to have a free access to a publication for which we had participate and some way already payed ?? (electricity, hardware)

The state of affairs in scientific publishing is indeed questionable... Some of our publications are here though.

I am a bit curious to find out why I received only 2 publication badges although I am going to cross the 500 million credits barrier this week.^^

Both of my badges date back to paper submissions in October 2016 and May 2017 but I continuously contributed to GPUGRID even with increasing throughput since then - still I am not even amongst those having contributed to the 2018 Martinez-Rosell paper (submitted in October 2017 already), although statistically speaking this appears to make rather little sense if I compare the computational efforts of my machines to those who successfully got the badge - especially at the lower end of contribution throughput.

Is there something wrong or am I just extremely unlucky? ;-)


P.S.: Please take this as anything but criticism. ;-) In fact, GPUGRID is one of the few DC projects where contributers can really find out about their machine's scientific contributions...
