The American Association for the Advancement of Science carried out a study on intellectual property and electronic journal publishing with the aim of identifying those aspects of the intellectual property regime that facilitate or constrain the effective development of electronic scientific publishing. This paper summarizes the conclusions reached, emphasizes the continuing need to maintain the legal framework offered by copyright law, but makes recommendations both for its modification and in its application to ensure that the potential benefits of electronic publishing are fully realized. The full report by AAAS is posted on the Web at www.aaas.org/spp/sfrl/projects/ epub/finalrept.html
