Electronic Distribution of Technical Reports and Working Papers: A Simple Cooperative ApproachReport
The electronic distribution of technical reports, journal preprints and other working papers makes both economic and ecologic sense. It can be more efficient and less resource intensive than current methods of distribution. More importantly, in the case of engineering and the physical sciences the cutting edge of research is often found in technical reports and working papers. Journals have assumed an archival role because of long publication delays. This report describes the approach that we have taken at the University of Virginia and the software, techrep, that we have built to provide access to electronic archives of this sort.
