Samuel Wilson, Deputy Director, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. [FR Doc. 05–18596 Filed 9–16–05; 8:45 am] The NIEHS invites public input on the issue of potential privatization of EHP. Please note that the NIEHS has not reached a final decision about potential privatization of EHP. If the Institute decides to move forward with privatization, then an implementation plan would need to be developed. This implementation plan will need to address several core topics listed below. The NIEHS seeks public input on the questions identified for each topic to facilitate reaching a decision on potential privatization and, if appropriate, development of an implementation plan. The NIEHS is interested in maintaining and enhancing the capacity of EHP to be a significant resource for researchers, clinicians, patients, family members, and the general public. We similarly seek to maintain and enhance EHP’s reputation, credibility, accessibility, and value to the scientific and lay communities interested in environmental health and disease. 1. Feasibility of privatizing EHP. Q1a. Are there likely to be private sector commercial or noncommercial entities interested in publishing EHP? Q1b. Are there any difficulties that would be created by transferring publication of EHP from a government agency to the private sector? If so, please elaborate. 2. A business plan for continuation of the journal. Q2. What issues should NIEHS consider in developing an implementation plan for privatizing EHP? 3. A timeline and plan for transfer of responsibility. Q3. Are there ways to ensure an efficient transfer of functions such as editorial oversight, subscriber lists, archives, and digital content? 4. An editorial policy plan. Q4. How should the scope of EHP’s coverage, from news to peer-reviewed research, be considered in executing a potential privatization? 5. Online access.
