Dear All,

If you take a look at the home page of Donald E. Knuth,

he has a section called 'Crisis in Scientific Publishing' and a link to a
14 page letter


he wrote to his colleagues on the board of Journal of Algorithms.  This
tells his personal history with the journal, its publisher, and then leads
his colleagues through options, and ultimately a decision.  While he is too
busy, I guess, to write an update to the letter, the outcome is that the
board will establish a new title of the same scope with ACM, to be called
ACM Transactions on Algorithms.

The 14 page missive goes over familiar ground to most of us.  Nevertheless,
it is interesting reading.
