Additional files relevant to electronic journal publishing are available at the FTP, Gopher, Listserv and WWW sites. FTP Archive: The Scholarly Communications Project of Virginia Tech has an anonymous FTP archive which includes the VPIEJ-L archive, along with many electronic texts and electronic publishing utilities. To access this site, FTP to BORG.LIB.VT.EDU and login as userid anonymous. This FTP archive is available to the Gopher literate through the Gopher at gopher.micro.umn.edu. Select item 5, Internet file server (FTP) sites/, then item 2, Popular FTP Sites via Gopher/. Gopher Access: The FTP archive files are available via a Gopher+ server at borg.lib.vt.edu port 5070. VPIEJ-L files are in /pub/vpiej-l. Menu items are likely to gain new names, but this server is now permanent. Listserv Archive: There is a listserv archive available at email@example.com (listserv@vtvm1 for BITNET) for VPIEJ-L. Send a command as the body of a mail message to get a current filelist: INDEX VPIEJ-L to listserv. Use the get command to retrieve items from the archive in a mail message: GET EJ-BIB TXT. Usenet Gateway: Subscribers may want to consider reading VPIEJ-L on Usenet. Check with your system administrator to see if your site receives bit.listserv.vpiej-l. If it does, you can unsubscribe your email account by sending a SIGNOFF VPIEJ-L command to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will still be able to post to the list by email to email@example.com. If your site does not carry this group, please encourage them to add it. WAIS Source: The discussion logs for the VPIEJ-L list are searchable via WAIS. The wais source may be retrieved from the directory-of-servers by searching for VPIEJ-L, or by FTP to borg.lib.vt.edu in the pub/WAIS/sources directory. World Wide Web Access: Point your WWW or Xmosaic client at the Scholarly Communications Project page: http://borg.lib.vt.edu/ There is a link to a hypertext version of the VPIEJ-L discussion archives, which are still under construction, although complete. There is also a link to the Usenet newsgroup bit.listserv.vpiej-l. ----------------------- VPIEJ-L@VTVM1 VPIEJ-L@VTVM1.CC.VT.EDU bit.listserv.vpiej-l VPIEJ-L is a discussion list for electronic publishing issues, especially those related to Scholarly Electronic Journals. Topics for discussion include SGML, PostScript, and other e-journal formats; as well as software and hardware considerations for creation of, storage, and access to e-journals. Publishers, editors, technical staff, programmers, librarians, and end-users are welcome to join. One goal of the list is to provide better feedback from users to creators, so we are very interested in receiving and archival issues. This should give those of us involved in publishing an idea as to what distribution methods work and how end-users are accessing and using these publications. Current readers of and contributors to VPIEJ-L have discussed readability and screen display, copyright, and advertising (noncommercial). Archives of VPIEJ-L are available. A listing may be retrieved by sending a command INDEX VPIEJ-L to LISTSERV@VTVM1.CC.VT.EDU To subscribe, send the following command to LISTSERV@VTVM1 via mail or interactive message: SUB VPIEJ-L your_full_name where "your_full_name" is your name.

Please, FORWARD the following message to scientists at your department or university who are interested in international research cooperation. THANKS ! ------------------------------------------------------------ Internet and other nets are ready to connect scientists located at almost any point on the Earth. This fantastic infrastructure has been planned, financed and built with the hope that it will enhance the world wide academic cooperation, involving experts with different cultural and educational background, and resulting in new discoveries and industrial designs. However, the results are still poor and the achievements are much lower than expected. After collecting scarce information and studying available know-how regarding international scientific projects, we are ready to write some chapters and to publish a book with the preliminary title "Heureka via the Internet" (short: "H/I"). We are kindly asking you to contribute to the book with your ideas which will be printed in the book. All contributions will be credited to the authors, coauthors, reviewers and consulting editors. A world wide contribution is expected. If you are inclined to accept our invitation, please send us your comments and answers on the following questions by e-mail as your first contribution: (1) Which topics or chapters should be included in the book? (2) What are the major obstacles which influence a poor progress of international scientific (research) projects via networks? (3) Did you write any article or report on this subject, and do you know of any references? (4) Do you know about any successful project which could be described as a case-study in the book "Heureka via the Internet"?

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM August 12 and 13, 1994 08:30 - 17:00 h During this Symposium we will be exploring the issue of validation of research information. We will be examining the role of the various players: researchers, editors, publishers, and the media. We will try to look, as well, at the role that publication plays, be it to ensure the continuity of grants or for career advancement. These issues have become more pressing because of the speed and ease with which information is transmitted through the use of such things as electronic mail and the Internet.

The group will meet: Saturday, June 25, 1994 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Miami Beach Convention Center A107 Bring your comments, questions and experiences. The speaker will be Peter McDonald, the Director of the Geneva Library at Cornell University. His talk is titled: "Mosaic: The User-centered Universe." The gist of the talk will be that libraries have existed in a Ptolemaic info-system universe where for both traditional and technological reasons, the library has been at the center of the information universe. You came to the library to do your research, and from the library you were able to connect to sources around the globe and to browse the stacks for books & journals.. But technology is rapidly creating a Copernican universe where the USER now stands at the center of the info-system universe and the library once the center is now just another node. But a very important node because it is the ONLY node which will make sense of and taxonomically manage the exponential explosion in electronic information. The user won't do it, they just want to GET to it. Corporate America won't do it, they could care less about an intelligent electronic-info taxonomy, they only want to turn a buck. Vendors, faculty, book dealers and computer nerds won't do it, they have other fish to fry. No, it is up to librarians to manage the new Copernican universe, but alas, without even the satisfaction of seeing the user face to face. In fact the user won't even know what a great job we're doing. But do it we must! So what has this got to do with Mosaic? Plenty, because in the Mosaic environment, anyone can create their own interactive, graphically polished GATEWAY to information where the "big" academic library may only be a wee little stopping place. But before librarians go calling Dr. Kavorkian over this loss of status, remember that we are still the only guardians of cyberspace who will be willing to invest time and effort to MANAGE it and make it coherent to your average desk-top Internet surfer. I will then describe the Mosaic environment with examples, and show how WE as librarians can use it, or any hypertext (html) interface to organize the information out there for that new library without walls, e.g. the desk-top GATEWAY (= new library) on the user's computer. THAT will be the library of the 21st century. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ___________________________________________________________ Craig Mulder, Human Health Information Services Librarian firstname.lastname@example.org | A217D East Fee Hall 517/336-3819 | Michigan State University Fax: 517/336-1798 | East Lansing, MI 48824-1316 ========================================================================= Date: Thu, 16 Jun 1994 15:31:53 EDT Reply-To: NOTIS Acquisitions Discussion Group Sender: "Publishing E-Journals : Publishing, Archiving, and Access" From: Susan Davis Subject: NASIG Call for Papers This message is being posted to a variety of lists. Please excuse the resulting duplication. Thank you. CALL FOR PAPERS, WORKSHOPS and PRECONFERENCES NASIG 10TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE (1995) "SERIALS TO THE TENTH POWER: TRADITION, TECHNOLOGY AND TRANSFORMATION" The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG), an organization committed to serving the interests of all members of the serials information chain, plans to hold its tenth annual conference June 1-4, 1995 at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. NASIG's annual conference provides a forum in which librarians, publishers, vendors, educators, binders, systems developers, and other specialists exchange views, present new ideas, proactively seek solutions to common problems, and discuss matters of current interest. The proceedings are published in both print and electronic format and distributed to a wide audience. The Program Planning Committee invites proposals for plenary papers and preconferences dealing with any "big picture" aspect of the theme. We are especially interested in the challenge of balancing traditional functions with technological innovations within organizations and in consortia and in the creation of new alliances. Established projects, new experiments, and "blue sky" speculation are all welcome. Examples: *Reinventing serials: optimizing their role in scholarly communication; *Creating and providing access to electronic journals: editing/publishing, purchasing/acquiring, transmitting/delivering/ gopherizing, cataloging, and archiving/preservation/securing); *Copyright reconsidered and reconfigured *New developments in Internet use: commercial use, public policy and security issues; *Re-examining the role of the serials professional in the new information society The Committee also invites workshop and preconference proposals that will provide practical assistance in making changes, planning and implementing new projects and forming alliances. Examples: *Case studies from virtual libraries and electronic publishers; *Reconstituting local serials collections; *Analyses of user responses and needs; *Training/retraining/educating serialists for new roles in article delivery, public service, monograph acquisitions, etc.; *Relevant new technologies/services/software packages/standards; *Creative financing for innovation; grantsmanship. Submission of topics and suggestions for speakers are welcome from NASIG members and other members of the information community. The Program Planning Committee reserves the right to combine, blend or refocus proposals to maximize program breadth and relevance to our membership. As a result, only one presenter from proposals submitted by teams may be invited to participate. Since all proposals are reviewed competitively, please include complete information for maximum consideration: *Name, address, phone/fax numbers, e-address(es) of the proposer *Program title *An abstract of 200-300 words that clearly explains the intent of the proposal as well as its relationship to the theme *Please list in priority order the formal preference for your proposal: plenary, workshop, or preconference. Proposals should be submitted no later than August 1, 1994 to: Susan Davis NASIG Secretary Head, Periodicals Section State University of NY at Buffalo Lockwood Library Building Buffalo, NY 14260-2200 Phone: 716-645-2784 Fax: 716-645-5955 Bitnet: UNLSDB@UBVM Internet: UNLSDB@UBVM.CC.BUFFALO.EDU ========================================================================= Date: Mon, 20 Jun 1994 08:21:27 EDT Reply-To: Micheal Strangelove Sender: "Publishing E-Journals : Publishing, Archiving, and Access" From: Micheal Strangelove Organization: FONOROLA Incorporated Subject: Internet and Magazine Sales: Journalist Seeking Success Stories ----------------------------Original message---------------------------- For the first article in my new column on the Internet and publishing for FOLIO MAGAZINE I am writing about print magazines that have gained significant numbers of new subscribers as result of Internet-facilitated marketing.

Not surprisingly, the acceptability of publications in electronic journals was a significant discussion topic. I'm guessing that readers of this group would be in a position to answer a question I have, as one concern of e-journal editors might involve attracting quality papers from individuals who would probably like to use their publication record for P&T purposes. So: Is anyone aware of academic departments which have explicit guidelines or statements on the relative acceptability of e-journal publications in the context of promotion and tenure dossiers? Please send your responses directly to me - if I receive any responses, and if anyone is interested, I'd gladly summarize them for the group. Thanks for your help - I must note that previous pleas for help posted here by me were promptly and thoroughly answered, and I appreciate the kindness of strangers!

The only time they get is when their boss permits them to attend a training class. Consequently, we have always had instructor-lead classes. However, recently I have seem a CD-ROM based course which runs on PC's with Windows and the IBM/Intel full-motion video card and sound system. Could this be the solution that I am looking for? Any and all replies gratefully appreciated.

Volume 2 Issue 2 will be published in July 1994. The editors welcome contributions (all articles will be refereed, however a section - *Positions* - will exist for those wishing to take a more controversial stance on things). HOW TO ACCESS Access is via gopher or ftp. The journal file name of this issue is 2,1-June1994; Volume 1 Issues 1-8 may also be accessed in the same way. GOPHER: -- info.utas.edu.au and through gopher: -- open top level document called Publications -- open Electronic Antiquity. -- open 2,1-June1994 -- open (01)contents first for list of contents, then other files as appropriate FTP: -- FTP.utas.edu.au (or ftp.info.utas.edu.au) --> departments --> classics --> antiquity. -- In Antiquity you will see the files as described above. Since a few people had problems accessing the journal via ftp, here are the stages in more detail: at your system prompt: FTP at the subsequent prompt: open FTP.utas.edu.au at login prompt: anonymous at password: your username (which won't show) then: cd departments then: cd classics then: cd antiquity then: ls -l then: cd 2,1-June1994 then: ls -l You will now have a list of the various directories (the 'd' beginning each line 'drwx....' indicates you're dealing with a directory) then: cd (into whichever directory you want) then: ls -l If the first character in the line is not 'd', you've got a file. Use the 'get' command plus the file name to download. If you're still in a directory, use the 'ls-l' command to list its contents. Use 'get' to transfer files. To move back up the directory tree: type: cdup then: ls -l And repeat the process. If still having trouble, try, once you have the directory list for the journal: Type (for example) cd (01)Contents Your response should be 'CWD command successful', but no list. Type ls-l Your response should be in a form such as: -rw-rw-r--1 1689 77030 DATE TIME contents Type get contents and you should have a copy. A final alternative if a space is magically inserted in the parenthesis of the file number is to specify: CD ./(01)Contents Please also be very careful when ftping *not* to leave *any* spaces in file names or make typos. Do NOT use Telnet. The best way to access the journal (in terms of both ease and time) is by gopher, and we would urge you to do so. The structure of the journal is also more easily recognisable on gopher. Please try to access *here* in Tasmania either during the night, very early morning or at weekends, since during the business day the lines are crammed. This means you'll need to check with (e.g.) the international operator for the right time difference.

Today, governments, schools, public organizations, commercial enterprises and private individuals are actively using and supplying information over the global Internet. How will these various network communities cooperate and interact? How will the academic and research community adapt to the new network reality? How will the network and networking tools now available stand up to the explosion in number of users and amount of information available? How will we train novices? What will we pay for and what will be for free as the commercialization of the network progresses? Will we be inundated by advertising over the net? These are only a few of the questions facing network service providers and users alike. Building on the success of the previous Network Services Conferences in Pisa (1992) and Warsaw (1993), NSC'94 will focus on the issue of providing services to customers, with special attention paid to the exciting developments in global tools and services. We will address the impact of the new global tools on service development and support, the changing function of traditional tools and services (such as archives), new services (such as multi-media communications), the future role of the library and the effects of commercialization on networks and network services. Customer support at all levels, and the role of support in accessing global services, will also be covered. Talks, tutorials, demonstrations and other conference activities will address the needs of the research, academic, educational, governmental, industrial, and commercial network communities. NSC'94 is being organized by the EARN (European Academic and Research Network) Association in cooperation with the Internet Society, RARE, RIPE, NORDUnet and EUnet. Conference Venue What can be said about London in a few meagre paragraphs that has not been said in thousands of pages written throughout the centuries? Instead, we invite you to browse the information on London available from the EARN World-Wide Web server at: http://www.earn.net/nsc94/venue.html (and if you don't know about the World-Wide Web, then you MUST attend this conference!). The conference will be held at the Great Western Hotel, near the Paddington railway station. The Great Western is one of the best 3 star conference venue in London, and very easy to get to, as it is situated on 4 tube lines, a railway station and is on a main road into downtown London. Conference Information Dates to remember: Deadline for papers - 1 July 1994 Deadline for demonstrations and posters - 16 September 1994 NSC'94 - Monday, 28 November 1994 - Wednesday, 30 November 1994 Location: Great Western Hotel, London, England. Accommodations: Rooms will be reserved for conference participants at the Great Western Hotel, and at other nearby hotels. Language: The official language of the conference will be English. Conference fee: The fee covers entry to all conference sessions, tutorials and demonstrations, conference material, coffee breaks, lunches and social events: EARLY Registration by 1 October 200 Pounds LATE Registration by 10 November 224 Pounds DESK Registration 248 Pounds Tutorials, Demonstrations and Posters In addition to the presentation of papers, there will be tutorial sessions on specific network services as part of the regular conference program. A room will be available for workstations and PCs to be used for demonstrations throughout the conference. A poster wall will be available to participants for the display of their posters and projects. Terminals with connectivity to the Internet will be available to delegates. Technical meetings of EARN and RARE working groups will be held in conjunction with the Conference. Further Information and General Inquiry Further information will be available through the conference mailing list, NSC94-L@EARNCC.EARN.NET (or NSC94-L@EARNCC.BITNET).

This is a subversive proposal that could radically hasten that day. It is applicable only to ESOTERIC (non-trade, no-market) scientific and scholarly publication (but that is the lion's share of the academic corpus anyway), namely, that body of work for which the author does not and never has expected to SELL his words. He wants only to PUBLISH them, that is, to reach the eyes of his peers, his fellow esoteric scientists and scholars the world over, so that they can build on one another's work in that collaborative enterprise called learned inquiry. For centuries, it was only out of reluctant necessity that authors of esoteric publications made the Faustian bargain to allow a price-tag to be erected as a barrier between their work and its (tiny) intended readership because that was the only way to make their work public in the era when paper publication (and its substantial real expenses) were the only way to do so. But today there is another way, and that is PUBLIC FTP: If every esoteric author in the world this very day established a globally accessible local ftp archive for every piece of esoteric writing he did from this day forward, the long-heralded transition from paper publication to purely electronic publication (of esoteric research) would follow suit almost immediately. The only two factors blocking it at the moment are (1) quality control (i.e., peer review and editing), which happen to be implemented today almost exclusively by paper publishers and (2) the patina of paper publishing, which results from this monopoly on quality control. If all scholars' preprints were universally available to all scholars by anonymous ftp (and gopher, and World-wide web, and the search/retrieval wonders of the future), NO scholar would ever consent to WITHDRAW that preprint from the public eye after the refereed version was accepted for paper "PUBLICation." Instead, everyone would, quite naturally, substitute the refereed, published reprint for the unrefereed preprint. Paper publishers will then either restructure themselves (with the cooperation of the scholarly community) so as to arrange for the minimal true costs and a fair return on electronic-only page costs (which I estimate to be less than 25% of paper-page costs, contrary to the 75% figure that appears in most current publishers' estimates) to be paid out of advance subsidies (from authors' page charges, learned society dues, university publication budgets and/or governmental publication subsidies) or they will have to watch as the peer community spawns a brand new generation of electronic-only publishers who will. The subversion will be complete, because the (esoteric -- no-market) literature will have taken to the airwaves, where it always belonged, and those airwaves will be free (to the benefit of us all) because their true minimal expenses will be covered the optimal way for the unimpeded flow of esoteric knowledge to all: In advance. Biographical sketch (5-15 lines): Stevan Harnad, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Cognitive Sciences Centre at University of Southampton UK, was born in Budapest, Hungary, grew up in Montreal, Canada, did his undergraduate work at McGill University and his Doctorate at Princeton University (in cognitive psychology). His research is on categorization and neural networks and on perception, cognition and language in general, on which he has written numerous articles and edited and contributed to several books. A further interest is "Scholarly Skywriting," a form of interactive electronic publication and communication that he has been actively involved in exploring and developing, and on which he has written several articles. He is Founder and Editor of two refereed journals, Behavioral and Brain Sciences and PSYCOLOQUY, the first paper (published by Cambridge University Press since 1978) and the second electronic (sponsored by the American Psychological Association since 1990).

Proceedings of International Conference on Refereed Electronic Journals: Towards a Consortium for Networked Publications. University of Manitoba, Winnipeg 1-2 October 1993 (in press) FILENAME: harnad94.peer.review ABSTRACT: Electronic networks have made it possible for scholarly periodical publishing to shift from a trade model, in which the author sells his words through the mediation of the expensive and inefficient technology of paper, to a collaborative model, in which the much lower real costs and much broader reach of purely electronic publication are subsidized in advance, by universities, libraries, and the scholarly societies in each specialty. To take advantage of this, paper publishing's traditional quality control mechanism, peer review, will have to be implemented on the Net, thereby recreating the hierarchies of journals that allow authors, readers, and promotion committees to calibrate their judgments rationally -- or as rationally as traditional peer review ever allowed them to do it. The Net also offers the possibility of implementing peer review more efficiently and equitably, and of supplementing it with what is the Net's real revolutionary dimension: interactive publication in the form of open peer commentary on published work. Most of this "scholarly skywriting" likewise needs to be constrained by peer review, but there is room on the Net for unrefereed discussion too, both in high-level peer discussion forums to which only qualified specialists in a given field have read/write access and in the general electronic vanity press. Hayes, P., Harnad, S., Perlis, D. & Block, N. (1992) Virtual Symposium on the Virtual Mind. Minds and Machines 2(3) 217-238. FILENAME: harnad92.virtualmind ABSTRACT: When certain formal symbol systems (e.g., computer programs) are implemented as dynamic physical symbol systems (e.g., when they are run on a computer) their activity can be interpreted at higher levels (e.g., binary code can be interpreted as LISP, LISP code can be interpreted as English, and English can be interpreted as a meaningful conversation). These higher levels of interpretability are called "virtual" systems. If such a virtual system is interpretable as if it had a mind, is such a "virtual mind" real? This is the question addressed in this "virtual" symposium, originally conducted electronically among four cognitive scientists: Donald Perlis, a computer scientist, argues that according to the computationalist thesis, virtual minds are real and hence Searle's Chinese Room Argument fails, because if Searle memorized and executed a program that could pass the Turing Test in Chinese he would have a second, virtual, Chinese-understanding mind of which he was unaware (as in multiple personality). Stevan Harnad, a psychologist, argues that Searle's Argument is valid, virtual minds are just hermeneutic overinterpretations, and symbols must be grounded in the real world of objects, not just the virtual world of interpretations. Computer scientist Patrick Hayes argues that Searle's Argument fails, but because Searle does not really implement the program: A real implementation must not be homuncular but mindless and mechanical, like a computer. Only then can it give rise to a mind at the virtual level. Philosopher Ned Block suggests that there is no reason a mindful implementation would not be a real one.
