Colin Steele, E-prints: the future of scholarly communication? inCite,
October 2002. "Will 2002 be seen as the watershed year when the Open
Archives Initiative (OAI) really took off and began to have an impact
on global scholarly communication? The OAI develops and promotes
interoperability standards that aim to facilitate the efficient
dissemination of content. The Eprints.org free software is OAI
compliant and enables institutional archiving with appropriate
harvesting." Steele's survey of eprint archiving progress is
especially strong on recent developments in Australia.
