Re: public library

I believe this is an important initiative for medicine and life
For other scientific areas, there is the excellent e-Print archive
http://xxx.lanl.gov/ that, I think, should be used more, especially in
its computing research section.
It may be of interest to know that IEEE and ACM allow to post submitted
and published articles to the repository, provided the author includes a
copyright notice in the first page. On the other hand, we recently asked
JASA for a similar permission, and they didn't allow it. Personally, I
think this is an important point to consider when choosing a journal as
a publication target.
