E-Knowledge: Freeing the Refereed Journal Corpus Online
Computer Law & Security Report, 16, (2), .
The author of this paper has been advocating for some time that online public self-archiving of the refereed journal literature be introduced without delay. Indeed he sees it as inevitable in all disciplines within a very short time. He also believes that it can be achieved without compromising the peer reviewed journal literature. What follows is a point-by-point critique of two prominent published critiques of a proposal along these lines by the former Director of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), Harold Varmus. The proposal was to establish a free archive for the biomedical literature called "E-Biomed" (since renamed "PubMed Central" and currently being implemented along somewhat different lines). The critiques by Floyd Bloom, Editor of Science, and by Arnold Relman, Editor of the New England Journal of Medicine are both rebutted in quote/commentary format below.
