David Marjanovic ( cited:

<5.1. The publication date is the date on which publication, as defin=
ed in
 Article 4, took place. More specifically, it is the date on which th=
publisher or publisher's agent delivered the printed matter to a carr=
for distribution to the public. In the absence of proof establishing =
other date, the one appearing in the publication itself must be accep=
as correct.>

  1. If this is held true, the publication _Palaeontologica Electroni=
cannot be held to have a published date, as there is not date the "pr=
matter" was delivered to an receptacle.=20

  2. There is no clause as to conflicting dates of release (as noted,=
_JVP_ article as well as a 1994 issue of the _Canadian Journal of Ear=
Sciences_ were printed with the original, but erroneous, date they _w=
to be released).=20

 Perhaps a clause of "If two or more conflicting dates cited for
publication of an article or other publication are present, that date
which is most recent is held to be the valid date of publication, unl=
otherwise stated."

  3. _Naturwissenschaften_ publishes taxonomy digitally ahead of the =
release, and Springer-Verlag has made a point of noting that the digi=
release is the VALID one for such issues, and that the rpint issue is
merely the conventional release form of the publication.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to mak=
ing leaps in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to =
do.  We should all learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world arou=
nd us rather than zoom by it.
