Although there's been little discussion on the MEDLIB list, there's been
quite a bit of discussion in other forums.  Go to the E-Biomed website:  and check the
comments section.  There's quite a bit of very well thought-out commentary
there, both pro and con.

Subject: "E-BIOMED" NEJM Editorial

Recently Pamela Van Hine (I think) commented on NIH's proposal for  the
establishment of "E-BIOMED", a Web site for the publication of all new
biomed research, and wondered why it wasn't the subject of more discussion.

Perhaps the discussion is finally starting. The _NEJM_, June 10, 1999, vol.
340 (23), pp. 1828-1829 contains an editorial by Arnold S. Relman, with whom
I agree, on the subject.
