Sorry to ask back carefully here again:
Do we have to extend "will see the results in academic articles" by "if
they have enough money to buy the corresponding academic
newspaper/magazine"? or by ", which are ensured to be available free of
charge and for anybody interested."?

One of my personal main problems with academic research is that it's
incredible expensive to look into articles without having access to them
(or to libraries which pay for that access somehow), so this would be at
least a good argument for me (and I guess some others) to put more
effort in telling you more detailled stuff, I guess  ;)
