Aloha Worm Folks!

I hope you are all having a great holiday season.  Looking back at the 
annelida archives (thank you Geoff) a rather large percentage of our 
exchanges seem to be people looking for papers.  I know that there are 
disjointed projects underway for providing access to such papers, but 
finding broken references is sometimes easier than finding the papers 
themselves. It seems that polychaete folks need a place to share 
documents so I just created polydocs for us 
(http://www.wormguy.com/polydocs.html) as a place where you can post 
papers and unpublished (but useful) reports and data.  Dozens of people 
download the Invertebrate Zoology dictionary from my site each month, so 
I have hope that this can be a useful resource.  I'm willing to provide 
server space and my compilation/indexing time if you're willing to 
provide useful documents.  I plan to keep www.wormguy.com alive as long 
as I am (anybody want it after that?) so I hope it will be around for a 
few more years.

How to Contribute

All contributors are responsible for their own submissions and should 
only submit documents they have a right to distribute freely. If any 
publisher or other entity has exclusive distribution rights and requests 
that a document be removed I will do so. Two categories will be 
supported: peer-reviewed/published papers and unpublished (but 
presumably useful) data. Unpublished data such as local references, 
guides, workbooks, and useful but not publication-worthy data set 
submission is encouraged. Email your human-readable submission as a .pdf 
document (one at a time) to paavo from wormguy.com. Include a plain-text 
message with the publication title and abstract. Data-only can be 
submitted in a variety of database formats or spreadsheets ONLY if 
sufficient meta-data is provided to interpret the data (collection 
methods, locations, limitations, etc.). If the document list grows large 
I will provide an Endnote library file for convenient searching. To 
avoid dead-link maintenance, only documents actually stored on this 
system will be listed.

Happy Holidays,
Brian Paavo
