The ADONIS Experience


James Andrew Braid


The fundamental concept of Adonis is that new technology can be used to reduce the cost of supplying articles from printed journals. The idea is not a new one, it dates back some 10 years. Early projections showed that the technology was not ready. In the mid-1980's further advances in technology made possible a limited trial. As a result of that trial the publishers have decided to go ahead with a commercial service from 1991, in experimental form. At about that time the technology was becoming available to put the theory into practice.
