Oxford is the publisher and also owns the copyright. The reasons behind that have to do, apparently (according to Rebecca Chasan, Exec Editor of JNCI, Oxford Univ. Press) with NCI being "privatized". Supposedly it is "not the official journal of NCI" and has something to do with the all articles, from NCI and other sources, being considered for publication in this journal. Supposedly also, not all articles published by NCI staff are published in JNCI. The agreement with Oxford dates back to 1996. I was advised not to approach the publisher, since it will be useless, but to alert NCI to our ACESS problems, as they "should be concerned". I was also given the following e-mail address for writing to NCI: http//www.nci.nih.gov/contact/form_contact.aspx Dalia Kleinmuntz, AHIP [log in to unmask] Director, Webster Library, Evanston Hospital Evanston Northwestern Healthcare 847-570-2664 847-570-2926 FAX Opinions expressed are my own and do not reflect those of ENH.
