    Metalist of open access eprint archives: the genesis
    of institutional archives and independent services

    "This is not a list of individual open access archives of full-text
    research papers, but instead lists and comments on other lists of
    individual archives. This list and its categorisation gives a broad
    overview of the structure, size and progress of full-text open access
    eprint archives.

    "This list will be maintained and updated as far as is possible,
    and is intended to assist further quantitative research on the open
    access eprint phenomenon for those who want to measure the growth
    and quality of open access eprint archives."

Steve Hitchcock, Southampton University
