+++  First Request for Discussion (RFD) for the Creation of  +++
                       sci.astro.research

Introduction
------------

The newsgroup sci.astro is an unmoderated group for discussion and 
dissemination of information putatively related to the fields of
astronomy, astrophysics, amateur astronomy, astronomy education,
and space and physics related topics. The wide popularity of
astronomy has made sci.astro a very active newsgroup, with
a substantial daily bandwidth of articles on diverse topics.

However, the charter of sci.astro makes it difficult for
researchers in astronomy/astrophysics to use it as an effective
research tool. There is a relatively small "signal-to-noise" ratio of 
postings that are of relevance to the activities of astronomical research.
In addition, sci.astro is also subject to its share of abuse by 
(cross)posting of articles of minimal or imaginary relevance to 
astronomy and astrophysics. Thus, the reaction of many research 
astronomers to sci.astro has been to avoid it entirely. This has 
an adverse effect on the timely and widespread dissemination of 
information and related discussion of astrophysical phenomena 
(such as supernovae and other transient events) to the astrophysics 
research community and serious amateur astronmers who help to provide
important monitoring of these events. Of course, the role of sci.astro
is not to provide an exclusive forum for research, however, the 
present condition of sci.astro greatly inhibits the involvement of
the astronomical research community.

Informal discussion about creation of a moderated subgroup of
sci.astro has recently appeared in sci.astro and by e-mail. 
There was general support for the creation of such a group, 
provided that it did not adversely effect the interaction between 
amateur and professional astronomers. There was particularly 
strong support for a moderated subgroup voiced by professional 
and academic astronomers.

The following serves as the formal Request for Discussion (RFD) on the 
creation of the moderated newsgroup sci.astro.research.

Summary: Discussion of astronomy/astrophysics research & related
         topics and information.

Status:  Moderated.

Moderator:  Martin Sulkanen ([email protected])
Backup Mod: Michael V. Newberry ([email protected])


The purpose of this newsgroup is the discussion of astronomy & 
astrophysics research, and the dissemination of information 
related to astronomy & astrophysics research. Postings
appropriate for sci.astro.research would include (but does
not exclusively consist of) : (i) inquiries or discussions 
about specific current or historical research, or (ii) of 
research-related topics (observing equipment, computational
techniques & software, catalogs, textbooks, journals, references, 
etc.), (iii) observations of astrophysical phenomena of interest to 
researchers (novae, supernovae, variable stars, high-energy 
sources, extragalactic astronomy, planetary astronomy, etc.), 
(iv) announcement of recent publications submitted to refereed 
journals or of collections of such publications received as 
preprints, (v) announcement of future conferences & workshops, 
proposal or grant announcments of opportunity, and (vi) general
scientific news relevant to astronomy & astrophysics.

The moderator will have relatively broad powers to determine
postings that are appropriate for the newsgroup. However, there
are some basic principles that the moderator will adhere to:

  1.  Postings will be judged on their relevancy to scientific
      research in astronomy and astrophysics. For example,
      inquiries such as "what are AM Her stars and can one
      make useful optical observations of them?" are likely
      to be deemed within the realm of this newsgroup, while
      those such as "will the sun blow up one day?" are likely
      to be redirected to sci.astro. The criterion is *not*
      the credentials of the author (contributions by 
      amateurs are encouraged), but the relevance of the 
      post to research issues.  

  2.  Controversial topics and issues in research can be
      addressed, provided that they are discussed with
      scientific rigor and rationale; "because I say so"
      speculations will be redirected to sci.astro. 

  3.  "Unverified" astronomical observations will be posted with
      a disclaimer regarding the reliability of the observation. 
      A verified observation is defined as one that has been
      checked and is certified for accuracy by the supporting
      institution (eg. bulletin from an observatory, research
      organization, etc.) It is hoped that posts of the
      unverified observations will serve as a source for 
      other observers for further investigation or for 
      astronomical organizations as a source of additional
      data for research programs, subject to their *own*
      verification. 

  4.  Personal attacks, crossposts irrelevant to astrophysics/
      astronomy research, commercial advertisements, political 
      discussions, or posts originating from addresses that 
      cannot receive e-mail will be rejected.


It is planned to archive the contributions to this newsgroup
and provide a connection to this archive through Mosaic and
anonymous ftp. A FAQ, covering the moderation philosophy
and other administrivia, will be posted monthly by the
moderator.


Summary
-------

The newsgroup sci.astro.research is being proposed to provide
effective and rapid communication within usenet of research
activities in astronomy and astrophysics. Submissions from
all realms of astronomy of postings relevant to research 
activities within astronomy/astrophysics are encouraged. 
Contribution of professional/research personel to sci.astro
is now primarily feedback to amateur and enthusiast
inquiries concerning general topics in astronomy. Contributions
to sci.astro by these readers is likely to continue with
the existence of sci.astro.research. Furthermore, the
newsgroup sci.astro.research is likely to expand the
level of participation by researchers on sci.astro.

This group is proposed as moderated in order to limit the 
contributions to the newsgroup to research issues, and
to provide a level of quality reflective of a scientific
research newsgroup. Particular attention will be paid by 
the moderator to include contributions by amateur and 
professional alike, but requiring that posts be relevant 
to astronomy/astrophysics research issues.

It is planned to archive the posted contributions to this
newsgroup.



This first RFD is being submitted on 28 February 1994 to the following
newsgroups:

            news.groups
            news.announce.newgroups
            sci.astro
            sci.physics
            sci.physics.research
            sci.space.science

This RFD may be distibuted freely to other relevant newsgroups or 
maillists, provided the followup line (to news.groups) is unaltered. 
Note that discussion regarding this RFD should be conducted only in
news.groups! 

The CFV is expected to be posted within 30 days of the posting of this
RFD from news.announce.newgroups, and is planned to be conducted by
a Usenet Volunteer Votetaker. The CFV will be posted to the same
newsgroups listed above.

Moderation principles
---------------------

The moderator will have relatively broad powers to determine

are some basic principles that the moderator will adhere to:

  1.  Postings will be judged on their relevancy to scientific
      research in astronomy and astrophysics. For example,
      inquiries such as "what are AM Her stars and can one
      make useful optical observations of them?" are likely
      to be deemed within the realm of this newsgroup, while
      those such as "will the sun blow up one day?" are likely
      to be redirected to sci.astro. The criterion is *not*
      the credentials of the author (contributions by
      amateurs are encouraged), but the relevance of the
      post to research issues. 


  2.  Controversial topics and issues in research can be
      addressed, provided that they are discussed with
      scientific rigor and rationale; "because I say so"
      speculations will be redirected to sci.astro. 


  3.  "Unverified" astronomical observations will be posted with
      a disclaimer regarding the reliability of the observation. 

      A verified observation is defined as one that has been
      checked and is certified for accuracy by the supporting
      institution (eg. bulletin from an observatory, research
      organization, etc.) It is hoped that posts of the
      unverified observations will serve as a source for 
      other observers for further investigation or for 
      astronomical organizations as a source of additional
      data for research programs, subject to their *own*
      verification. 


  4.  Personal attacks, crossposts irrelevant to astrophysics/
      astronomy research, commercial advertisements, political 
      discussions, or posts originating from addresses that 
      cannot receive e-mail will be rejected. Posters that
      wish to keep their email address confidential may
