"In a trend that could permanently alter the nature of scholarly publishing,
 several top research universities are setting up electronic superarchives to
 store and share their researchers' data. Some universities see these
 "institutional repositories" simply as a way to capture their intellectual
 output, but others aim to use their repositories as a means of launching
 open-access alternatives to conventional academic journals

This fall, the University of California (UC) plans to unveil just such an
 option for its researchers: the ability to create and run an open- access,
 peer-reviewed journal within the framework of its eScholarship Repository"
