Does anybody know what is the legal status of preprinting a paper as
a technical report? It is a frequent practice in academic departments
to distribute not-yet-published articles as technical reports and I
have never heard of problems when the same papers are submitted to
refereed journals. Technical reports can be distributed and archived,
and often have the same identical content as the submitted paper.
