[BOAI] word origin of "green" and "gold"
From: Shigeki Sugita <ssugita AT chiba-u.jp>
Dear BOAI 2002 vanguards, Someone please teach me about the original meanings or implications of ↵ "green" and "gold" at the time of the first BOAI ↵ recommendation. Why was self-archving named as "green" and OA ↵ journals as "gold"? green: green light? "RoMEO-green"? gold: highest grade? (like "Gold Medal") Best wishes, -- Shigeki Sugita <ssugita AT chiba-u.jp> Chiba University Library, Japan -- To unsubscribe from the BOAI Forum, use the form on this page: http://www.soros.org/openaccess/forum.shtml?f
