"Research librarians will meet with the US Justice Department next week to discuss their concerns over publishing monopolies and increasing costs. They've asked the US government to block the merger of two of the largest scientific publishing companies in the world."

"Elsevier owns about 300 biomedical journals and Harcourt owns about 200 biomedical titles. Combining the two publishing houses will give Elsevier 33 to 45% of the market share within biomedical publishing, he says. There's no hard and fast threshold to determine anti-trust monopolies, but this number is clearly above the line, McCabe says."

""Publishers are reluctant to give away content because they are concerned that advertisers may go away," said Jerome Kassirer, former editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine. "Advertisers pay more attention to the number of subscriptions to paper journals than to the number of eyeballs on any given website."

"There's a lot of anxiety that if (print journals) have an electronic offering, people will migrate online and they will lose their paper subscription revenues," agreed Tony Delamothe, editor of BMJ Online, a medical association journal that, unlike most journals, does not charge to access its electronic content.

Some insist that simply publishing electronically is not enough --and that open, free access is necessary to disseminate global research."

"How should biomedical research be communicated? How should research be assessed and validated?"

"Below are abstracts, transcripts, and biographies from the conference. Some presentations did not lend themselves to transcription. Where possible we have supplemented them with editorials from the speakers.

We have also commissioned editorial articles from several speakers and delagates at the meeting.

All thoughts, comments, and suggestions are welcome on our email discussion list"

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
