Subject: SPARC Newsetter for August

Dear All,

I know that the volume of information ABOUT OA is almost as voluminous as the 
number of articles distributed under OA and I do try to limit the news I send 
to what I consider are really worthwhile items but the latest issue of the 
SPARC newsletter -

issue #77 September 2, 2004 
http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/newsletter/09-02-04.htm

is a valuable summary of a lot of OA related information.

You may want to have a look and bookmark it for future reference.

Bye, Barry

Subject: Opinion piece on Peer Review

Dear All,

Here: http://www.the-scientist.com/yr2004/sep/opinion_040913.html

you will find an Opinion Piece on Peer Review, in the context of the public 
perception of Science. IMO, it is a very well balanced piece.

Bye, Barry
