Hej alla!

Som bekant la NLM fram ett förslag i våra om att inrätta en preprint-server
inom medicin (se NLM:s förslag på: Enligt förslaget
skulle forskare kunna skicka in artiklar till databasen vilka ännu inte
gått igenom peer-review processen.

Förslaget utlöste en våldsam debatt inom forskar- och
publiceringssamhällena (se:

Nu kommer förslaget att modifieras något, enligt en artikel i senaste
numret av Science. Dels ändras namnet från E-biomed till E-biosci, dels
kommer inriktningen att ändras så att det blir en "re-print-server", dvs
(jag citerar från science-artikeln):

"In the revised form, E-biosci would serve as host to scientific groups and
journal publishers. After certification, these groups would be free to post
on E-biosci virtually any material they chose--reviewed or not. NIH
director Harold Varmus, who conceived the E-biomed project earlier this
year with several colleagues, is hoping that journals will post the full
text of the articles they are publishing. It would be up to the groups to
decide whether to post unreviewed e-prints as well. Varmus has also made it
clear that he is ceding another important point: NIH will not get involved
in debates over who should own copyright to articles on E-biosci. In his
original E-biomed proposal, he suggested authors would retain copyright,
but in an "addendum" released on the NIH Web site on 21 June, he said this
issue should be handled on a case-by-case basis (Science, 25 June, p.
2062). Journals that wish to retain copyright would do so."
