What’s Science Got to Hide?

As leading scientists question the use and abuse of freedom of information, Index looks at the data wars and the limits of scientific debate. BMJ investigative editor Deborah Cohen writes on the scandal of secret trials;
Fred Pearce assesses the battle for data; the ACLU’s Heather Weaver looks at creationists in the classroom; Tracey Brown explains why law can be bad for your health and Michael Brooks hails the scientific rebels with a cause. Also in this issue, Abdelkader Benali reflects on the Arab spring, Louis Blom-Cooper’s lessons for the Leveson Inquiry and new writing from the Middle East.
