Cool. I stand corrected. Would you mind reviewing the following statements:

* Accepted works at JWS will have a paywalled copy at Elsevier,
reformatted to publishers styles, PDF (and/or in other formats), and
considered to be final, canonical, and citable.

* Accepted works at JWS will have a free PDF copy made available from
www.websemanticsjournal.org, but this copy is not to be cited.

* As mentioned by Ian Horrocks, "Articles on the preprint server are
post-review, and differ from the published version only w.r.t.
formatting." [Pending proof]

* Authors can choose to give Elsevier exclusive rights to publish and
sell their work (to libraries, individuals..), or authors can pay the
article processing charge (APC) to make the works accessible for free
from Elsevier's access point. In the case of APC, there is no constraint
for Elsevier to omit existing charges to libraries for those works.

* www.websemanticsjournal.org and its archive (ie. the preprint server)
is not funded by Elsevier, but instead funded by public funds.

* Research objects (eg underlying data, tools) are not accessible, ie.
not hosted by www.websemanticsjournal.org or Elsevier.

* Article contributions to JWS may only use non native Web technologies
eg LaTeX/Word..

* No JWS Editor to date received payment from Elsevier for their role.

* Peer-reviews are carried out by the community as opposed to Elsevier.
Reviewers are not paid by Elsevier (or other for-profit). Reviewers may
be publicly funded through their academic institutions or labs to carry
out the review process.

* Peer-reviews for accepted and rejected works are not accessible by public.

Corrections and additional information is most welcome.
