Various authors, Sept 18, 2002
Commentary by Stephen Downes

From the press release: "A collective of European universities and publishers today announced the establishment of FIGARO, an academic publishing project that will create a European network of institutions providing e-publishing support to the European academic CRLFcommunity." The name FIGARO is taken from the names of two previous projects: Federated Initiative of GAP and Roquade. The purpose of the site is to increase the speed with which scientific publishing occurs and to address the fact that universities pay for the same article several times over. I might add that I really like the design of this page: the background is spectacular.
