   This is a time for experimentation in publication methods, and your
suggestion sounds just what is needed. A major problem with the electronic
media is arriving at some form of citation information which will be acceptable
to the paper media. At present it is a one-way process...the electronic media
can cite the paper media, but seldom the converse.

To get your new journal cited, I suggest you use some format familier to
editors of the paper media. For example:

       Smith, J. (1996) World Publication 0703, 1724

where the "volume" number  0703 would equal the month and day
of posting, and
the "page" number 1724 would indicate the time of day of
                                                             the posting (gmt).
       Sincerely,
Don Forsdyke
