American Scientist article

I was scanning the September-October 1998 issue of American Scientist
yesterday, and ran across the following article: "Free Internet Access to
Traditional Journals," by Thomas J. Walker. (The article is also available
on the Web at:


In the author's words, "In this article I shall describe the experiences
of one small scientific society that has ventured into low-budget
electronic publishing (without putting up toll gates). Based on these
experiences, I shall show that societies can pay for delayed free Internet
access to all articles in their journals by selling immediate free access
to those authors who want it."
