The E-only Tipping Point for Journals

The E-only Tipping Point for Journals: What's Ahead in the Print-to-Electronic Transition Zone - "As academic librarians, publishers, authors of research articles, and readers of journals well know, journals began a profound and ongoing makeover with the arrival of the World Wide Web. Technological, economic, and human factors are transforming both journals and the broader process of scholarly communication. The first phase of development for the twenty-first century journal has taken two forms, the born-electronic journals and the electronic editions of print-based journals. It is the second category that provides the focus for this investigation." By Richard K. Johnson and Judy Luth. Published by the Association of Research Libraries
