We are talking to a variety of editors and publishers who are keen to make
data "open available" and in many cases mandate it as part of the scientific
process. It's clear that although PP are (I hope) fairly self-explanatory
the implications (licences, buttons, "public domain", community norms, etc.)
are unclear and need careful explanation. One way to do this is through FAQs
and we (Rufus, Cameron, Jonathan + me) are asking for the help of the
OpenScience list to provide useful communal answers. I'll post the FAQs -
feel welcome to add to them but not TOO many - and ask you to create
answers. There is a pirate pad at:


Please use to edit, discuss, hack etc.

We will appreciate rapid feedback as we hope to promote this to attendees at
the AmerChemicalSoc (ACS) next week.
