Dear Stevan Harnad

Many thanks for your email in response to the editorial on communicating
science in an electronic era.

We have posted it on our letters to the editor page
( and have also taken the opportunity
to post it on a special section of the website that we are launching today
on "Open Access and Scientific Publishing" under 'Feedback and Debate'.

In this section ( we have drawn together
resources on access to scientific information in the developing world.

It includes:
· Up-to-date news, features and opinion articles on the issues
surrounding open access and scientific publishing
· Descriptions of (and links to) current open access initiatives
· Access to free scientific literature
· Links to key reports
· Comprehensive events section with the latest meeting proceedings and
future events.
· An opportunity for you to comment and give your views

We hope that this guide will be a useful and important resource for all
those interested in open access to scientific information, and will provoke
further critical thinking and discussion on the key issues.

I would therefore be grateful if you could pass this message on to
colleagues and friends who might be interested (
Also, do let me know if you have any comments on the section.

Best regards

Katie Mantell
