          Core metalist of open access eprint archives

          Available soon:
          Metalist of open access eprint archives: the genesis
          of institutional archives and independent services

          "This is not a list of individual open access archives of full-text
          research papers, but instead lists and comments on other lists of
          individual archives. This list and its categorisation gives a broad
          overview of the structure, size and progress of full-text open access
          eprint archives.

          "This list will be maintained and updated as far as is possible,
          and is intended to assist further quantitative research on the open
          access eprint phenomenon for those who want to measure the growth
          and quality of open access eprint archives."
