Bob Kelly, APS: Expanding Readership in Theoretical and Experimental Physics
Mood:  bright
Notes by Christina Pikas
Anton Chekhov, "there is no national science just as there is no national multiplication table, what is national is no longer science..."

1994 APS workshop: publishing preprints on the web is not pre-publishing for submission purposes
Dropped page charges (for all but PRL)
1995 NRL first institutional repository (TORPEDO)
1998 Physical Review Special Topics Accelerators and Beams -- did not charge, libraries reluctant to catalog since they weren't paying for it.

They (like IOP) are moving away from journals towards articles and collections and integrated collections. (note: this has a lot of implications in a lot of spheres, I believe we discussed this at a PAM session at SLA WRT IOP)

He compared institutional subscriptions (now) with the way it was in the late '90s: individual subs, group/department subs, and library subs. Individual subscriptions have doubled in cost, but in general institutions are paying less because access is available across the institution with the online and with the single print copy in the library. hm.

New Services
- ENTS: essential non-text stuff (ex. holograms)
- wikis
- folksonomies
- blogs
- full text xml, single column pdf

Copyright statement - has been evolving, but according to Stevan Harnad (audience) has been a step ahead and was the first green publisher (meaning allows self-archiving, etc)

They're looking at non-traditional revenue sources such as archives back to 1893.
