Like Green and Gold, IR and CR offer multiple pathways to Open Access and so
in that sense they ARE NOT in competition.

Unlike Green and Gold, IR and CR lead to OVERLAPPING and DUPLICATED activity
and so they most certainly ARE causing competition of limited resources
(time, attention, patience).

However, the SWORD protocol for automated deposits offers a technical
solution that reduces that element of pragmatic competition. What is needed
is the political will to adopt these solutions.
