E-only journals: is it time to drop print?
Abstract:This article is a revised version of a talk given at the ALPSP seminar of the same name in February 2005. The current state of play with electronic-only ('e-only') journals is reviewed, along with some data on the different ways print and electronic editions are used. The drivers for and against a move to e-only journals are discussed, including economic and commercial issues, long-term access and preservation, and the growing divergence between the capabilities of print and electronic journals.
