                   MODERATOR VACANCY INVESTIGATION (MVI)
             moderated group sci.psychology.journals.psycoloquy

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because 
moderated newsgroup sci.psychology.journals.psycoloquy is not 
functioning, and may have been abandoned by its moderator(s).

This investigation will attempt to verify the reasons for non-function, 
and may result in the removal of the group or the selection and 
installation of a new moderator.  In practice, the Big-8 Management 
Board considers the third alternative -- changing the status of the 
group from moderated to unmoderated -- as likely to cause more harm than 
good.

CHARTER

PSYCOLOQUY is a refereed electronic journal
          (ISSN 1055-0143) sponsored on an experimental basis by
          the American Psychological Association and currently
          estimated to reach a readership of 40,000. PSYCOLOQUY
          publishes brief reports of new ideas and findings on
          which the author wishes to solicit rapid peer feedback,
          international and interdisciplinary ("Scholarly Skywriting"),
          in all areas of psychology and its related fields
          (biobehavioral science, cognitive science, neuroscience,
          social science, etc.). All contributions are refereed.
          PSYCOLOQUY also publishes multiple reviews of books in any
          of the above fields.

          Authors of accepted manuscripts assign to PSYCOLOQUY the
          right to publish and distribute their text electronically
          and to archive and make it permanently retrievable
          electronically, but they retain the copyright, and after
          it has appeared in PSYCOLOQUY authors may republish their
          text in any way they wish -- electronic or print -- as
          long as they clearly acknowledge PSYCOLOQUY as its original
          locus of publication. However, except in very special cases,
          agreed upon in advance, contributions that have already been
          published or are being considered for publication elsewhere
          are not eligible to be considered for publication in
          PSYCOLOQUY.
