* Announcement (cross-posted) *

I just mailed the October issue of the SPARC Open Access Newsletter.  This 
issue takes a close look at the OA policy from the Wellcome Trust, which 
took effect yesterday, and the Authors Guild lawsuit against the Google 
Library project.  The Top Stories section takes a brief look at the new 
OECD report on scientific publishing, the CODATA proposal for a Global 
Information Commons for Science, Stevan Harnad's calculation of the 
monetary cost of lost citation impact, the new AZoM OA journal with a 
patented business model, the two Salvador declarations, and the continuing 
news and comment on the draft OA policy from RCUK.
