Jan -
I agree gold publishing does not stop parallel green - and hence
OAISTER/OAI-PMH distributed access - but will the author be encouraged /
stimulated to parallel green deposit when s/he knows that the OA gold
route makes the publication available free at the point of use (on a
publisher's database); my point was less about technical feasibility than
observed practice.
With a conventional publishing environment the author/researcher is
encouraged to parallel green deposit by a combination of funder mandates
and desire for widest dissemination / impact well over and above that of
the conventional (subscription-based) publishing route.
Stevan -
I agree with your comments; thanks for them
Both/list -
Sorry for the confusion; I was (as usual) too terse!
