@ George D: any news 
on those texts you mentioned we could practise peer reviewing 
on? We now have a 
password protected site to post text to... 

Sorry for taking so long but had been away for the past fifteen 
days and just got back today so i will try to post them to the 
wiki tonight. however, they are quite longish: for example, the 
first one is about 10700 words, so formatting it might be 
difficult and rather time-consuming. but since i already have it 
in html, i suppose it's not going to be that much of a 

as for the templates: i had a look at the various plone 
themes/templates but i can't say i liked any of them (perhaps 
with the sole exception of the olives theme). what however i 
liked the least about them is that none seemed to be 
aesthetically appropriate for a journal.. 

matthieu nailed the problem when he referred to the calendar, 
which is a design element/feature i don't think we need. on the 
other side, i think we need to ask ourselves whether the 
modifications required to turn the generic plone template/theme 
into something we could use for the purpose of publishing a 
journal can be made relatively easily or whether that would 
necessitate the expenditure of countless hours of tweaking..
