Description Elsevier last week stopped thousands of scientists in Germany from reading its recent journal articles, as a row escalates over the cost of a nationwide open-access agreement. The move comes just two weeks after researchers in Sweden lost access to the most recent Elsevier research papers, when negotiations on its contract broke down over the same issue. Negotiators on both sides in Germany now seem to be waiting for the other to blink, says Joseph Esposito, a publishing consultant in New York City. The highly public nature of the stand-off means that "any deal Elsevier does with them becomes the de facto deal for the entire world," he adds.

Description After three decades of being lauded as pioneers in successful environmental stewardship, officials who safeguard Earth’s ozone layer are facing an unexpected crisis: how to identify and cut off a rogue new source of ozone-destroying chemicals (S. A. Montzka et al. Nature 557, 413–417; 2018). If not stopped, the emissions of CFC-11 might delay by several decades the healing of ozone holes that appear at high latitudes early each spring. As expected, the issue featured heavily at last week’s meeting in Vienna of the Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) of the Montreal Protocol, which protects the ozone layer. Since the protocol’s launch in 1987, countries have curbed the use of ozone-depleting chemicals in refrigeration and other industrial processes. Ahead of the meeting, media reports and an analysis by the London-based Environmental Investigation Agency — a non-governmental organization with observer status in the Montreal Protocol — used interviews with company executives and information contained in advertisements to suggest that foam-manufacturing companies in rural China are to blame. Chinese delegates in Vienna made it clear that they take the matter seriously and, by all accounts, the issue has gone up to the level of Chinese President Xi Jinping. But they remained extremely reluctant to concede any serious wrongdoings on the part of Chinese companies, or government negligence in their oversight. This is understandable given that there is not yet definite evidence concerning the sources, quantity, duration or nature of the rogue emissions.

Description After they secure their first major research grant from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), women are almost as successful as men at netting further awards from the agency, according to an analysis published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences1. The study of almost 35,000 researchers that applied for NIH funding calls into question the commonly held belief that women leave science at a higher rate than men at all stages of their careers, which is often described as a leaky pipeline of talent. The narrative about female scientists’ careers needs to be corrected, says Judith Greenberg, deputy director of the NIH’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, who led the study.

Description Louis Chen was technically meant to retire in 2005. The mathematician at the National University of Singapore was turning 65, the university’s official retirement age. But he was only five years into his tenure as director of the university’s new Institute for Mathematical Sciences, and the university wanted him to stay on. So he remained for seven more years, stepping down in 2012. Over the next 18 months, he travelled and had knee surgery, before returning in summer 2014 to teach graduate courses for a year. Then, in 2015, Chen’s provost took him to lunch. “He told me that maybe it was time for me to leave,” says Chen, who was happy to retire. But he still hasn’t really left: he’s at his university office three or four times a week. “I cannot abandon my research,” says Chen. “It’s a passion.” In July 2015, he was appointed emeritus professor, a title that comes with perks: he’s eligible to apply for grants, and continues his research on probability and statistics. He maintains his e-mail address and library access and, he’s delighted to say, “free parking for life”.

Description The most remarkable thing about Scott Pruitt’s resignation from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is that it took so long. By all accounts, he was unfit to lead one of the world’s top science-based regulatory agencies. It wasn’t just that the former Oklahoma attorney-general had a well-documented history of consorting with industry to fight the agency. It was his contradictory behaviour — exemplified by the installation of an expensive sound-proof phone booth in his office — which put a premium on secrecy even as he made grand proclamations about transparency. But by far the worst was Pruitt’s utter disregard for both the science and the scientists under his charge — as we highlight in a News Feature this week. Ultimately, Pruitt seems to have been felled by the impunity he exhibited over the course of nearly a year and a half at the agency. Lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle raised alarms over his lavish spending and a series of alleged ethical transgressions that are more typical of crony governments elsewhere in the world.

Description The higher education movement in the USA gave the USA a GDP growth advantage from 1871 to 2012. It appears to have spearheaded a higher long-term rate of growth in per capita income in the US relative to the UK and other major European countries. The US had a 0.5% GDP growth advantage. Prior to 1860, U.S. per capita gross domestic product (GDP) lagged behind that of the United Kingdom. This changed in the second half of the 19th century as U.S. growth accelerated; U.S. GDP per capita surpassed that of the UK in 1905. Adam Cook of the State University of New York at Fredonia and Isaac Ehrlich of the State University of New York at Buffalo note that, in the 142-year period between 1871 and 2012, annual growth of per capita GDP averaged 1.9 percent in the U.S and 1.4 percent in the UK. The authors argue that differences in the availability of higher education explain this divergent growth. In particular, the Morrill Act of 1862, which used Federal land grants to incentivize U.S. states to build universities, rapidly increased the availability of university education in the later part of the 19th century. The trend continued with the expansion of the U.S. secondary education system from 1910 to 1940, which prepared a greater number of students for university enrollment, and the subsequent GI Bill of 1944, which helped cover the expenses of nearly 2.3 million college-bound veterans after the Second World War. As a result, the U.S. established and maintained a lead in higher education throughout the late-19th and 20th centuries, which in turn boosted human capital and growth.

Description The China New Era Technology Fund is raising 100 billion Chinese yuan ($15 billion) to invest globally in technology companies. The new company with the backing of the Chinese government will be similar to the $100 billion Softbank Vision fund. The China New Era Technology Fund is being put together by the China Merchants Group, SPF Group and London-based investment firm Centricus. Dalinc Ariburnu, co-founder of Centricus, was an advisor to Softbank on its fund. Venture capital is shifting to larger funds. Dalinc makes the case the size of funds and access to markets is critical in a new age of more active sovereign wealth funds. Sequoia Capital is raising as much as $12 billion between its global growth fund and other venture capital and growth funds in the United States and China.
