Thanks Kent for that input, am I right in thinking it ties in also with
the item I mentioned in a "News" a few weeks ago, from the UK New
Scientist magazine. Seems like there is a "tug of war" going on between
the publishers (including the AAAS in this guise) the scientists and the
open source depositories. It seems to me to be a typical "on the one
hand, on the other hand" type of argument.

I wonder is it a suitable topic for our discussion area on the ICSTI web
site?? I was thinking of asking Bernard to give us a training course in
Munich on how it works.

Bye, Barry

P.S. see also the site I mention in the upcoming "News" a debate by
Nature on the future of STM publishing.
