I have been busy with grants and hacking so have been away from the blog. (Making good progress on new ways of inputting and displaying chemistry). Here is a very important set of papers which are all highly relevant to this blog. I had hoped to find time to comment on each individually, but for now here is the table of contents.

The August issue of Cyberinfrasctructure Technology Watch (CTWatch) is devoted to The Coming Revolution in Scholarly Communication and Cyberinfractructure. All the articles are OA-related:

- Paul Ginsparg, Next-Generation Implications of Open Access
- Timo Hannay, Web 2.0 in Science
