My joy of self-archiving
Since I have been publishing my research papers mainly in open access journals, most of my self-archived articles, including English translations, are originally published in domestic journals. Although such publications are not evaluated for my academic accomplishments, I continue this activity because I want to share the following two things beyond my own special field. (1) Serendipitous episodes that are not allowed to publish in academic journals and (2) know-how that is useful for research activities. In this talk, my motivation, unexpected response to my documents and my future plans are told.
