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"
