    Self-Archiving your own writings

    Have you ever wanted control over your own writings and research, or to find someone else's drafts or research or articles, online? Physics scholars set up an electronic archive for their pre-print and print research articles in the early 1990s and have successfully added, searched, and exchanged this type of scholarly information since then.

    Soon, you also can easily self-archive your scholarly writings, through initiatives like EPrints and Open Archives. More about this later.
