sci.med.pharmacy NewsgroupFrom the charter of the sci.med.pharmacy
newsgroup: To provide pharmacists with a forum for the discussion of issues
related to the teaching and practice of the profession. It is expected
that sci.med.pharmacy would attract contributions from all the major disciplines
including pharmacology and pharmaceutical chemistry as well as areas with
more direct professional implications such as pharmacy practice and legislation.
It is proposed that cross posting should occur between the news group and
the Pharmacy Mail Exchange List. It is expected that all the postings to
the list will be transfered to the news group. However the intention is
to protect the list, which is distributed to personal mailboxes, against
high volume. The control of cross posting, where appropriate, would be
by the list co-ordinator.
