Influential researchers and academic organizations complain that inquiry has been hindered by new anti-terrorist laws, tightened national security and stricter immigration practices.

In one telling situation, 32 scientists and editors connected to some of the most respected scientific journals have agreed to self-censor any advances they think might compromise national security.

They decided that almost immediately after 9/11. Call it an act of patriotism if you will. I think it will serve to isolate those scientists and hold back advancement in general.

I think a lot of science is being held back already. This is no different, and is probably of less importance.
