Bruce Alberts named ed-in-chief of Science

The new editor-in-chief of Science Magazine is Bruce Alberts, a friend of OA who has defended the principle in public.  As President of the National Academy of Sciences, he tried to shorten the embargo on PNAS to two months, though he eventually moved it back to six months.  I suspect he will try OA experiments at Science.
