Alternatives to Commercial Publishing for Scholarly Communication

Author:

Frederick J. Friend

Abstract

Major changes are beginning to occur in scholarly communication. The availability of print journals in an electronic format is only the beginning of a revolution in the communication of research. A parallel revolution may be beginning in the organisation of the publication of scholarly communication. The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) led by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) in Washington aims to provide opportunities for new publishing ventures which will be in the control of the academic community and promote academic values of access to information.The text of this article is also available at http://elfikom.physik.uni-oldenburg.de/IuK
