GOVERNMENT WANTS TO SHUT DOWN PUBSCIENCE
The U.S. Department of Energy runs a Web site called PubScience that allows
users to simultaneously search more than 1,000 scientific journals for abstracts
and citations. But the department wants to close the Web site, saying that two
commercial operations, Scirus and Infotrieve, offer almost the same services. A
notice at the PubScience site (http://pubsci.osti.gov/) says that 90 percent of
PubScience's content is covered by these other sites and that their offerings are
expected to increase. A 30-day public comment period will end on September
30, after which a final decision will be made on the future of PubScience.
Publishers of some small scientific journals argue that closing the government-run
site would be a bad idea because their journals are not covered by either Scirus
or Infotrieve.
