Cites & Insights 18:7 (October 2018) is now available for downloading at https://citesandinsights.info/civ18i7.pdf

The 24-page issue includes:
Intersections: A Few Small Essays pp. 1-13

Half of this section is an informal commentary on a remarkable new free list of >35,000 open access journals (and other things) in the humanities and social sciences (mostly) from Jan Szczepanski. There are also commentaries on "when good scholars go bad"--why I think the new spate of articles Viewing With Alarm scholars at serious institutions with articles in "bad" journals are looking at the wrong side of the equation; the colors, and why I think two is enough; why I do not (currently) plan to cover the new Hot Topic in OA; whether you can or should be an OA observer without being an advocate [for or against] or a skeptic; why "Intersections"; and a comprehensive guide to really useful applications of blockchain in libraries. [Omitted for space and because I'm a coward: A suggestion that societies that depend on subscription revenues aren't necessarily better than commercial publishers...]

The Back: Audiophile System Prices 2018 pp. 13-24

This time around, I'm including median systems in each category: systems composed of median-priced components. You can assemble a complete (CD and LP) audiophile system for $1,918--or you can spend $832,223 before adding power conditioners and other extras.
