I got a request for a reprint of my article from someone at Tel Aviv University in the mail today:
Pretty cool, eh?
I don’t think people get many reprint requests anymore (although this is my first paper, so I could be wrong) because so many universities have quite good access to the scientific literature (and usually as e-journals at that). It’s yet another thing that separates the wealthy nations from the less wealthy nations…
On a completely shallow note, I like that I’m addressed as “Dr. M.E. Simpson” on this card.
