  Progress at last!  Paris conference organized by ISCU and UNESCO agree on
principles such as:

Setting up secure archive
Common standards for indexing and retrieval
Digital date stamps
Two tier system...peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed
Possibility of updating contributions

      I have suggested that date should be part of the access information,
using analogy with present paper literature. For example:

Smith, J. (1996) Bionet.journals.note 429:812

where the "volume" number 429 stands for April 29th
"page" number 812 stands for 12 minutes past 8.

Sincerely, Don Forsdyke Discussion Leader. Bionet.journals.note

             (see Nature 379, 758, 1996)
