*Stevan Harnad*: Tom, I wonder if it would be possible to drop the
double-talk and answer a simple question: Do or do not Elsevier authors
retain the right to make their peer-reviewed final drafts on their own
institutional websites immediately, with no embargo? Just a Yes or No,
please… Stevan

*Tom Reller*: Hello Dr. Harnad. I don’t agree with your characterization of
our explanation here, but nevertheless as requested, there is a simple
answer to your question – yes. Thank you.

*December 20, 2013*

*Stevan Harnad:* Tom, thank you. Then I suggest that the institutions of
Elsevier authors ignore the Elsevier take-down notices (and also adopt an
immediate-deposit mandate that is immune to all publisher take-down notices
by requiring immediate deposit, whether or not access to the
immediate-deposit is made immediately OA)… Stevan
