Education & Open Access - post ERIC changes

The effect of the recent changes in ERIC is discussed by the AERA Communication of Research SIG, which maintains a list of open access journals in education. DOAJ also includes journals in other disciplines as well as education.

Will an independent "disciplinary repository" develop in education (as is Cogprints for psychology, or MERLOT for learning objects)?

Will education faculty become regular contributors to institutional repositories that may be searched by OAI harvesters? See the University of Kansas ScholarWorks which was built on open-source software (DSpace) created at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
