Trends In Scholarly Publishing


Paul Sheehan


Two forces of change are at work in the academic serials publishing industry. One is the increase in the number of papers and in journal cover prices, to levels where the publication process effectively rations distribution. Secondly, information communications technology has the potential to allow radically different forms of publication. Already some academic groups have begun to publish (unrefereed) papers on pre-print servers operating over the Internet, a publishing model with many inherent problems.
