But Are They Sure He'll Feel Comfortable Voicing His Opinions?

An editorial from PLoS Biology welcomes Jonathan Eisen as the journal's first academic editor-in-chief. Eisen, who has been an academic editor for the journal since its launch, is well known in the GTO circle for being an outspoken proponent of open access. (So he must have relished the opportunity to write an essay for this issue of PLoS Biology explaining why he's such an ardent supporter and what he hopes to accomplish as academic EIC.) Congratulations from GTO, Jonathan. But we hope this doesn't get in the way of those entertaining blog posts!
