Re: Blasts from the distant past

Doing it for one Journal was time consuming and difficult. I won't be doing it for any more. If anyone else wants to take up the challenge, shout up.

Re: Blasts from the distant past

There are legal issues with digitising people work without permission :( Some authors point blank refused to allow their stuff to be so duplicated, we would, therefore, have to track down each and every author and ask their permission to reproduce their work in a digital format - I`m not sure this ...
