As refereed research journals go on-line there are still subscription-fee barriers to access to their papers. Southampton University has designed free eprints.org software so that universities can create interoperable Eprint archives in which authors can self-archive all their papers for free, for access by all. Professor Harnad will consider the impact of this "scholarly skywriting" on research productivity.
