Abstract

Over the last few years electronic versions of scholarly journals have become the pre- dominant access route to scientific articles for scientists in the academic and corporate environments.While the format of the basic content, the ‘paper’, still remains the same, the access and functionality of the electronic version can be highly variable.This is a continuous problem for users and librarians and more standardization is necessary in this field. A working group under the Pharma Documentation Ring (P-D-R) formed by information managers from pharmaceutical companies has produced a list of quality standards for electronic scientific, technical and medical (STM) journals that may meet the needs of all e-content customers.
