Illinois' public universities could have to share more of their research, under a new state law.
Pick a subject. Any subject. And two things are likely true:
-someone at a university is researching it, and
-the results of that research are getting published, probably in a scholarly journal.
There's the journal of Sewage and Industrial Wastes. Contemporary European History. The African Music Society Newsletter ... all of which gets the information out to experts in the given field.
