But by Freedom2Research tool reveals a large number of "forces" that have a direct impact on the extent scientists can really consider themselves to be independent.
Freedom-to-research (F2R) is a tool designed to help individual researchers and research groups to identify opportunities and challenges in a constantly changing world.

A list with useful Internet-based tools and information sources.
