The impact of disintermediation and the new economy on STM electronic information systems

Author:

David J. Brown

Abstract

The process of change, as a result of the impact of the Internet and the new economy, is having profound effects on the current stakeholders in scholarly information, notably among intermediaries. This report challenges the efficacy of the traditional model of journal publishing in its relevance to the new electronic information order. In particular it highlights disillusionment among the end users and suggests that there is a new role for intermediaries - that of providing effective navigation to bring those who are not part of the subscription and consortia arrangements into the information system.
