Hi Graham, all

Sorry for late reply, slowly going through backlog.

Re Elsevier, some observations seemed rather clever but I did not understand it all - perhaps it is too late in the day. Something about the impact factor being adversely affected by a change in the business model?? They would still be reselling the free labour of researchers under a different form - by charging for submissions as far as I could tell.

Regarding the CSPP process: a paper was submitted to test the system. All three reviewers have now given their views. I have to read them again and do a summary. Then we will see how to proceed. 

As for your question: essentially we will publish anything, as long as the author accepts that the published paper is accompanied by 'signals' regarding relevance, quality etc: as said previously the cost of publication or rejection is intended to be borne by the author. 

Hope this helps,

ps. The site installation has not progressed much owing to the Northern summer break but some writing has been done. More news soon.

interesting comment on the future of the journal-as-periodical-issue
(yes, I know elsevier is busy reorganising itself since that blog
appeared, but the comments are still valid)

I nearly finished something for the oekonux journal. But I'm not sure
about the rules and how much was decided. If I put it in as an
experiment with the process would I need to commit not to 
publish it
elsewhere? For how long?
