          Whether you have Abstracts or a fully-fledged electronic journal
          you are still going to have readers who want to CITE what they
          read. Perhaps the first step is to agree on some way of citing the
          electronicmedia which is in line with the way we cite the paper media
          Authors will submit IF they know that their work will be cited. They
          will NOT submit if there is no simple way of citing their work in the
          paper media. You will recall David that I have previously suggested a
          citation format by which a day is a "volume" and a second is a "page"
          This communication could be cited as:
               Forsdyke, D.R. (1993) Bionet.jrnl.note 308, 1729est.
                                      (The est should be corrected to gmt.)
                        Sincerely,   Don Forsdyke
