American Geophysical Union e-journals controversy

Lee Hadden writes: \"The American Geophysical Union (AGU) has had some controversy over
their new e-journals and e-publishing policies and prices. They include
issues of pricing, page numbering, manuscript backlog and other items. The
current issue of Science, August 30, 2002, pages 1468-1469 has an article

And AGU has posted their response to the criticisms in the Science
article on their web site\"
