This is very relevant for my family - I have one DS and another non DS who is just going to start his Masters in Sport Psychology who has often thought of doing a study on his brother's attitude to dance!

The Most Incredible Thing


A very interesting article in today's Telegraph Magazine (a colour supplement of the main paper). A new full length ballet with music by The Pet Shop Boys and choreography by Javier de Frutos will be at Sadler's Wells, London in March . It is based on a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale.

We seem to be crossing into an area of paid articles which border on our "no advertising" policy. We do appreciate the information, but prefer discussions of information that do not carry a price tag.

I've linked to one or two articles before that were paid article. That, however, doesn't mean they too didn't violate your policy.


When I see a price tag associated with an article, I always provide the price upfront. Some people might be enticed by the title, but are not interested in paying for an article. Knowing that there is a fee associated with the article, they can save themselves the effort.


If you like, I am certainly willing to stop posting links to subscription or fee based academic articles that might be of interest to your readers.


However, before you request that I stop, perhaps give some thought to the following argument.


The ban, I suspect, was put in place to stop people from hawking various wares. You didn't want to turn your site into a free-for-all. That I can certainly appreciate and support.


Most academic articles have a price tag because that's how the various journals support their printing and publication. While this is still commerce--after all, there is money being exchanged--the intent, I would argue--is slightly different. With various wares, the purpose is purely commercial. And with these articles, we hope, the purpose is to make a positive contribution to the dance community.


Please let me know if you would like me to stop. I don't typically don't pay and read these fee based articles. I just thought given your focus on ballet, some of your readers might find the articles helpful or interesting. Either way, I won't be affected as I still spot them. You or Victoria can contact me by message or by email or by leaving your answer here.


Please feel free to delete this entire thread if it is violation.

In regard to medical articles, the Medical Moderators have requested that they not be posted without running it by them first. I think that this is a reasonable request, and has been in place for quite a long time now.


With that in mind, I'm closing this thread.
