We have received a proposal below for a new newsgroup,


Discussion on the following proposal will now be open through 19
October on BIOFORUM/bionet.general (*not* on BIONEWS/bionet.announce).
For those who are not on the BIOFORUM/bionet.general newsgroup
currently, either read bionet.general on USENET or contact one of the
following biosci addresses to sign up by e-mail:

Subscription Address                 Location
--------------------                 --------
biosci at daresbury.ac.uk               Europe, Africa, and Central Asia
biosci at net.bio.net                   Americas and the Pacific Rim

One warning, however: BIOFORUM/bionet.general is a "chatty" newsgroup
and many other items will be discussed there besides this newsgroup
proposal.  USENET news access is definitely better than e-mail if you
want to monitor only this discussion.

Discussion Guidelines
Please do not post one-line messages saying things like "I am in favor
of such a newsgroup".  We will collect votes later.  The discussion
period is an opportunity for anyone to bring up reservations about the
proposed charter below and to propose modifications prior to the vote.
If the charter is perfect as is, then there is no need for anyone to
say anything!!!

The newsgroup discussion leader may submit a revised proposal in light
of the discussion, and the new charter would be included in the call
for votes which will go out on 20 October (Newsgroup Discussion
leaders - please note this deadline - if no revisions are received
before the deadline, the original charter will be voted on.).

Please be aware that only one vote is counted per e-mail address, so
it is necessary to have your own account in order to vote.  Multiple
votes from the same address are not accepted.  If you are interested
in the following newsgroup, but do not have an e-mail address of your
own, please obtain one from your computer center before the call for
votes is issued.

Newsgroup character:

The TIBS/bionet.journals.letters.tibs newsgroup will be used to
encourage feedback and discussion on articles published previously in
the hardcopy issue of "Trends in Biochemical Sciences."  It will, in
essence, serve as an electronic "Letters to the Editor" and a
discussion forum.  This will be a moderated newsgroup, and all
contributions will be reviewed by Jo McEntyre at TIBS prior to
posting.  Contributions to this newsgroup may be considered for
publication in a future issue of TIBS.
