Dear Stevan:

I spoke about open access at the Annual Meeting of
INSA [Indian national Science Academy] and the
Centenary Celebration of the National Library of India
held at the Asiatic Society, Bombay. The talks were
well received.

We raised the point that although the Indian Institute
of Science has set up an institutional archive, hardly
any faculty or student is keen to submit their papers
to the archive! Prof. N Balakrishnan, chairman of
Information Division at IISc and India's leading
authority on digital libraries, felt that researchers
do not submit papers to archives because they would
like to submit them to high-impact journals.

Please write to Prof. Balakrishnan and Prof. M S
Valiathan, president of INSA, explaining the ROMEO
project and its findings that most journals do not
mind accepting papers deposited in institutional

Here are their email addresses:

Thanks and regards.
