Apologies if this has already been posted to the list but members might be
interested to know that there are 'uncorrected' transcripts of the oral
evidence presented to the UK Inquiry into Scientific Publications from
both sessions (1 & 8 March 2004) available via

The transcripts record evidence presented from representatives of (session
1): Blackwell Publishing, Nature Publishing Group, Macmillan Limited,
Wiley Europe Limited; (session 2): Institute of Physics (IoP), Association
of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), Oxford University
Press, Axiope Limited, Current Science Group (BioMed Central), Public
Library of Science.

I should note, as the Web site does, that "Any public use of, or
reference to, the contents should make clear that neither witnesses nor
Members have had the opportunity to correct the record. The transcript is
not yet an approved formal record of these proceedings."

Best wishes,
