Organization and technology for the recording of science
Abstract:Scientific research requires access to earlier research results. Over time a system supporting scientific exchange has evolved where publishers, libraries and archives each have well-defined institutional roles. New information and communication technologies are challenging the established order for the recording of science and alternative systems are evolving. A strong commercial market for STI coupled with decreased purchasing power on the part of libraries makes organizational issues as important as technological ones.
