Open Access News

News from the open access movement

Thursday, August 08, 2002

It's already started. In the second story in today's issue of the FOS Newsletter, I tried to collect all the evidence I could find from the past six months that eprint archiving and the Open Archives Initiative have achieved a kind of chain-reaction momentum. But I've already started to discover items that I overlooked. The August 8 issue of Shelflife cites a paper by JoAnne Rocker and three co-authors explaining how NASA's Scientific and Technical Information program will create OAI-compliant repositories for two different initiatives. Unfortunately the paper is undated. (I'll post other omitted items here as I run into them. I welcome leads.)
