Colleagues

It may be of interest to know the position taken by two important learned
society publishers in physics, the American Physical Society and the
Institute of Physics. Both ask authors to transfer copyright to them as
publisher, but permit authors to deposit papers at the freely available
ArXve 'web-library' run from Los Alamos. ( They also permit authors to
deposit papers at their own Web Home Pages). Thus the papers are
completely freely and permanently available on the Web.

Indeed both provide links between references in a published paper and
material deposited on the Los Alamos site.

Both state that doing these things has, as yet, had no identified bad
effect on journal sales.

Regards

Ian Butterworth
