You need action by academics. If you want to have an intermediated process (by means of an achive) then it will crucially depond on the behaviour of the intermediary, in this case of the archive managemnt. This is what I mean here by the business model of the archive. You have changed your mind twice on what the optimal business model is. You will change it again... Until then, I shall keep a bit more quiet. When I return to NYC, I will have web access again, and find other things to do. Just for correction > online papers that already exist on arbitrary websites webwide. This > is the invaluable service Thomas's RePEc (Research Papers in > Economics) is performing for over 86,000 non-OAI papers RePEc does not index arbinary website, but archive sites. They have the same functioality as OAI archives, in fact OAI was modeled after RePEc. The whole OAI concept was first implemented there.
