    It’s a pity that this article by John Sheekey and his brother call the “Australasian Journal of Combinatorics” the “Australian…”. But it’s nice to see the journal given as an example in this interesting article.

    Interesting, too, to see that law and mathematics are the two subjects which have concerns about gold access.

    Apologies for the typo, it will be corrected… another benefit of online journals!

    Professor Cameron, yes it seems (anecdotally) that we may be in the minority of areas where gold access is not already commonplace, which I think makes it more vital that we speak up for ourselves!
