Follicular Mucinosis is characterized with the accumulation of an abnormal amount of mucin. Mucin occurs as part of the connective tissue in the Mid-layer of the skin. Follicular mucinosis is an uncommon inflammatory condition. It is more frequent in adults. It can be described as a reaction occurring in the tissue in which there is a perifollicular and perivascular inflammatory cell infiltration.
Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel roads towards open access: Open Access articles and self-archiving. Open Access articles are immediately, freely available on their Web site, a model mostly funded by charges paid by the author (usually through a research grant).
Open Access raises practical and policy questions for scholars, publishers, funders, and policymakers alike, including what the return on investment is when paying an article processing fee to publish in an Open Access articles, or whether investments into institutional repositories should be made and whether self-archiving should be made mandatory, as contemplated by some funders.
