Today's (April 26) Nature magazine http://www.nature.com/nature/
contains the following article on the Self-Archiving Initiative:
http://www.cogsci.soton.ac.uk/~harnad/Tp/naturenew.htm
(the above is the preprint: official version is at nature.com).

Nature is also currently running an on-line debate on
"Future e-access to the primary literature" at:
http://www.nature.com/nature/debates/e-access/index.html
This includes the following commentary by me:

(the above is the preprint: official version is at nature.com).

Science is also currently running an on-line debate on 
the same topic:
http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/eletters/291/5512/2318a
and
http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/eletters/291/5512/2318b

All interested (and informed) parties are encouraged to
participate in both debates.
