Summary

This week, National Institutes of Health director Harold Varmus announced that NIH will launch its electronic archive and publication site, now called PubMed Central (formerly E-biomed), beginning in January 2000. It will accept reports--both reviewed and some unreviewed material--comments, and data files from journals and scientific groups and redistribute them on the Internet at no charge. The final plan is described in a notice released by NIH on 30 August (www.nih.gov/news/pr/aug99/od-30.htm).
