  CogPrints Open Archive Awarded First of 8000 Psychological Science Sites

Dear Colleagues,

I bring this award to your attention not out of puffery (who knows what
such awards mean?) but for the following three reasons, of which the
third is by far the most important:

    (1) Whatever it means, it is surely a vote of confidence for Open
    Archiving: <>

    (2) It means that CogPrints <>
    is likely to be used still more heavily.

    (3) I hope this will encourage ever more authors in Cognitive
    Science (Psychology, Neuroscience, Behavioral Biology, Artificial
    Intelligence, Linguistics, Philosophy) to publicly self-archive
    their papers in CogPrints, both pre- and post-refereeing, in order
    to maximise its accessibility and research impact.

If you already have your papers in your departmental or laboratory
online archive, deposit copies in CogPrints for greater visibility and
accessibility. If your papers are not on the Web yet at all, it is
extremely simple to deposit them in CogPrints; if you haven't the time,
any student can do it for you in a few minutes.

Open Archives also already exist in Physics <>
Generic software will shortly be available for other disciplines

Subject: Psychological Science Award

First of all let me thank you for the wonderful job and for the service
you are providing for the psychological community on the internet by
developing and maintaining CogPrints.

While there exist many psychology related websites, only a relative
handful provide content such as your site does.

Psychological Science on the Net is developing a web space for
psychology related webpages and we are specially interested in
directing visitors to high quality content sites such as yours.

As such we have decided to award you the Psychological Science Award.

If you visit
you will see that your site is the first (and only at this point)
award. This is because of the almost 8,000 sites we have listed, yours
is one of a minority of sites that are of high content. Only a few sites
will ever qualify for this award.

Unlike many Internet 'Awards' the Psychological Science Award is not
intended to advertise our site, it is designed to advertise your site
to our viewers as place worth visiting.
