Peer J gives undergraduates a break

Remember back last year  we ended a blog entry  with : 

"PS. If anyone in PeerJ is listening: Tweaking membership rules a bit to allow one free article for students and young volunteer research assistants would be incredibly helpful. These are often still teenagers whose hard work  truly does deserve authorship.)"

Well evidently somebody was listening (though probably not to us). Now authors who were undergraduates when the research was being done don't have to find $99. This is very helpful. It also gives no excuse for those who would airbrush volunteer workers off the tutorship line. The link is here.
