These are such absurdities that led to the Berlin Declaration <http:// 

For example, now in France my employer the CNRS (National Centre for  
Scientific Research) is encouraging explicitly to publish scientific  
writings directly in the open-access archive HAL <http:// 
hal.ccsd.cnrs.fr/index.php?langue=en>, modelled after the US arXiv,  
before or instead of publication in standard scientific journals.  
What worries me though is the lack of peer review in this case: peer  
review is painful at times (I am precisely revising this week a paper  
into which I had already put several months of efforts), but always  
beneficial to quality at the end of the day.
