An extract from the Campbell/Butler contribution to the debate:

>  The PLS [Public Library of Science] initiative has drawn attention to the reasons for rethinking the
>  traditional model and also promotes the idea of centralized databases. In
>  stark contrast, most of those involved in the Internet business see a future in
>  distributed computing, and consensus standards. Indeed, a valid question for
>  all scientists is how Medline, PubMed and similar public services, for all their
>  much vaunted qualities, measure up to current mainstream content
>  management standards in industry. PubMed Central has now dissented from
>  the central PLS proposal and decided that, while it requires participating
>  publishers to deposit material with PMC for indexing, publishers can choose to
>  allow viewing of full text via links to their own sites.

debate??
