    You suggested that Navlist should be available like JON/JOIN.  The difference is that papers sent to the journals of learned societies are peer reviewed to death before they're published.  That means most of what's written can be relied upon to be reasonably correct.  Therefore, academics can rely upon it for references to include in their own papers.  Navlist is a different animal.  It's a forum.  Some bits might be correct, other bits need correcting.  I suspect a significant portion of the fees for such journals is retained by the publishing house although some does go to the learned society.  I also suspect that most of the fees come from academic institutions who take out group access for thier members.  They only do this because such access is recognised as being essential to research referencing.  Good as it is, I don't think Navlist serves the same purpose. That said, a sifting process to put references to a particular post into strings as some other forums do would be useful. DaveP
