A list of works in progress is a good idea, but you might include
at its head a disclaimer about staking off turf.  Perhaps you could
ask contributors to include a terminus, or a date after which they
won't work on the topic, or a date by which they much, sorry *must*,
be finished with it.  I know of one scholar who was going to write
on Omnipotence, Omnipresence and Omniscience in Milton, for about
twenty-five years, then didn't.  Cheers, Roy

I don't think anyone should think of an entry in the WORK-IN PROGRESS
Index as a staying entry from the Stationers' Register.  SHAKSPER has
no authority to grant exclusive rights to anyone -- but your idea will
be dated and recorded in electronic records should you want to pursue
legal action, and the members of SHAKSPER will be witnesses, I suppose.
 
My sample entries included such dating, disguised as "ETA"s
(for non-fans of television police drama, "Estimated Time of Arrival").
My hope is that such an index will indicate neglected areas of
research, help to avoid duplicating efforts, and keep us all abreast
of the latest developments.  Any other suggestions or comments on
the idea?
