My blog comments seem to be giving people a lot of problems. Stevan Harnad comments:
Peter Murray-Rust writes: “Most chemistry publishing is closed access, not even allowing Green self-archiving (unless paid for). There is no sign that any of the major closed publishers (ACS, RSC, Wiley, Springer, Elsevier, Nature) are likely to change in the immediate future.”
Peter is right that ACS is likely to be the last of all publishers to go Green on OA self-archiving (http://openaccess.eprints.org/index.php?/archives/213-guid.html), but he is mistaken about most of the others on his list (see http://romeo.eprints.org/ ):
PMR: Thanks Stevan. I am happy to be corrected on Wiley, Springer and Elsevier. I seem to remember that the RSC (sic) announced it was Green ca. 2 years ago. That got into Romeo but then they said they weren’t green after all and it was a mistake.
I am also not really clear any more what pale-green is. I assume “gray” means neither gold nor green.
