      Computer scientists Samir Kumar=20
Bandyopadhyay (University of Calcutta), Debnath=20
Bhattacharyya (Heritage Institute of Technology)=20
and Anindya Jvoti Pal (Heritage Institute of=20
Technology) examine digital watermarking, the=20
process that embeds data called a watermark into=20
an object such that the watermark can be detected=20
and extracted later to make an assertion about=20
the object. Watermarking is either =B2visible=B2 or=20
=B2invisible=B2. Although visible and invisible are=20
visual terms watermarking is not limited to=20
images, it can also be used to protect other=20
types of multimedia objects. The research work of=20
these authors is on watermarking techniques in=20
particular, and they note that many of the=20
proposed techniques share three specific weaknesses:
complexity of copy detection, vulnerability to=20
mark removal after revelation for ownership=20
verification, and mark integrity issues due to=20
partial mark removal. Their paper for Ubiquity=20
presents a method for watermarking Handwritten=20
Signature that achieves robustness by responding=20
to these three weaknesses. They say the key=20
techniques involve using secure functions to=20
generate and embed an image mark that is more=20
detectable, verifiable, and secure than existing=20
protection and detection techniques.

         Subject: 10th Anniversary Version of Scholarly Electronic
Publishing Bibliography

Version 64 of the Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography
is now available. This selective bibliography presents over
2,780 articles, books, and other printed and electronic sources
that are useful in understanding scholarly electronic publishing
efforts on the Internet.


This is the 10th anniversary version of SEPB, whose first version
was published in October 1996:


The PDF version of SEPB is produced annually. The 2005 PDF
file is available (Version 60, published 12/9/2005).


The Open Access Bibliography: Liberating Scholarly
Literature with E-Prints and Open Access Journals, by the
same author, provides much more in-depth coverage of the
open access movement and related topics (e.g., disciplinary
archives, e-prints, institutional repositories, open access
journals, and the Open Archives Initiative) than
SEPB does.


The Open Access Webliography (with Ho) complements the OAB,
providing access to a number of Websites
related to open access topics.
